I have given up after two days of thinking what my favorite role of his was...but I will tell you the one that was the best in support of a miserably bad show from my childhood that I hated each and everytime I saw it but mindless watched it because it was the only game in town early early Sunday mornings - "Hilarious House Of Frightenstien" not hilarious at all but Vincent read these great short gothic horror stories as one of the 10 or so short vignettes per episode. They were worth waiting for in the crap pile that was the rest of that show.

Vincent always said the best movie he was in was LAURA. I think the best Vincent Price movie (ie., a vehicle intentionally desgned just for him) was THEATRE OF BLOOD.

Love my Vinnie. Will be watching some Vinnie tonight to celebrate. I wish I could have gone to St. Louis for the many wonderful events this month.

But let us not forget that it is also the birthday of Sir Christopher Lee, who turns 89 today. And yesterday Peter Cushing would have turned 98, so Pete's and Chris's ages are now mirror reverses of each other's.
