Vincent Price: The Versatile Villain (1997)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Vincent Price is the subject of this entry in the series. We start off learning about his life growing up in St. Louis and about him going to Yale for school. After graduation he began acting, which was a lifelong dream ever since he saw Lon Chaney in THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA. From here we learn how he became a success on Broadway, which led to a contract at Universal and then at Fox. After a good career as a character actor he got a real boost with the success of HOUSE OF WAX and this here led to all new parts as the boogeyman. Also discussed is Price's love of art and we hear about his various contributions and generosity. This is a pretty good entry in the series as fans of Price will enjoy hearing various stories about him but those unfamiliar with this work will get a great idea of what made him so special even when the material he was appearing in wasn't the best quality. We get interviews with the likes of Hazel Court, Dennis Hopper, Victoria Price (his daughter), Norman Lloyd, Lucy Chase Williams, Jane Russell, Roddy McDowell and Roger Corman. The documentary features clips from various Price films and TV appearances and we also get a quick glimpse of the actor visiting his art gallery in East Los Angeles College.
