Vincent Price was a box office draw with his horror films of the 1950's, 60's and 70's. But many never realized that Price was being groomed for more romantic leading parts in such films as The Song of Bernadette and Laura. This program focuses on the career of Vincent Price, from his early years in Hollywood to his later years working with the notorious American International Pictures and finally his rediscovery at the hands of filmmaker Tim Burton. A combination of DVD and film presentation, we also get a look at some rare pressbooks and posters used to advertise Price's pictures, this program is the ultimate testament to one of Hollywood's greatest talents.
