Vincent Price

Thespian, author, gourmand, Yalie: Vincent Price was the real deal. We recently watched his classic from 1958 "The House on Haunted Hill". Well, they just don't make them like they used to—an acid vat in the dungeon, skeletons, ghosts--over the top campy fun. My favorite part occurred when the star, after getting his guests thoroughly snockered, offered up little coffins containing loaded pistols as party favors—now that guy knows how to get a party started.

Next up, a choice selection from his cookbook “A Treasury of Great Recipes”.

My favorite part of that movie is when they're stuck in a closet or whatever with that crazy looking blind woman who looks like she gets pulled out on rollerskates.

(I'm sure you know which one I'm talking about.)

The Vincent Price movie that sticks in my mind is "The Last Man on Earth"--a zombie thriller that scared the crap out of me when I was a kid. BTW welcome to the Supper Club!
