What's not to love about Vincent Price?!?!
He had what Karloff and Lugosi had: not
only the physical impact but a voice that could either scare the pants off of you or pull you into their fun and games!
Not to mention his great good sense
of humor in this sketch with none other than Kermit the Frog!

This is a great treat for Halloween that Maven
came across that includes a second verse that she never heard. . . . It's Vincent Price's rap session for Michael Jackson's
Thriller. Tremendously ghoulish fun from first rate artists!

Maven came across an
interesting article that
involves Vincent Price
that you might want
to check out at
The 1959 version of The Bat
mentioned in the following article can be viewed for free at
It also stars Agnes Moorehead and Darla Hood.
|Vincent Price and "Friend"
|"The Bat" (1959)
Price made two movies that had literary beginnings: The Bat (1959) and The House on Haunted Hill (1959).
The Bat traces its start
in Mary Roberts Hinehart's The Circular Staircase (1908).
She and Avery Hopwood simplified Staircase
into a Broadway play called The Bat in 1920, which became a silent film in 1926 as well as a book.
Not to mention that D.W. Griffith,
the movie pioneer, wasn't above bootlegging the story in his own One Exciting Night (1922).
Roland West remade his silent version
into the talkie The Bat Whispers in 1930.
The Grosset and Dunlap copy that Maven
has of The Bat has stills from that version. So we come to 1959 when Wilbur Crane directed Vincent Price and
Agnes Moorehead in a modernized version.
Good news was The Bat's look
was more in keeping with the book.
The bad news?
We were left with fewer suspects,
with Price being (deliciously) one of them.

|"The Invisivle Man Returns" (1940)
out The Invisible Man Returns.
Vincent Price begins The Invisible
Man Returns as Geoffrey Radcliffe, who has been convicted and about to be put to death unless something is done by his
friend, Doctor Frank Griffin (played by John Sutton).
Griffin just happens to be rlated
to the original Invisivle Man, played by Claude Rains in the 1933 movie based on H.G. Wells' original book.
He arrages to visit Radcliffe before
the execution . . . . The next thing the guards know . . . Radcliffe has disappeared, leaving his clothes in a heap
on the floor. (Surprise, surprise, surprise!)
This is where Returns differs
from the original with Rains. Doctor Griffin injected Radcliffe with a similar solution but used duocaine instead of
monocaine from the 1933 story.
What's the difference?
All Maven knows for certain is we
are treated to Vincent Price, as Radcliffe, going nuts and actually helping in finding out who was really at fault in the
murder of his brother.

|Vincent Price and Peter Lorre Who Went to
|Bela Lugosi's Funeral Together
FACT OR FICTION?!
Vincent Price and Peter Lorre were
supposedly at Bela Lugosi's funeral. . . .
Lorre may have played too many
weirdos in Hollywood because he
allegedly leaned toward Price and
"Do you think we should drive a stake
through his heart just in case?!"
OOOHHHH, what he said!!!!
