Vincent Price Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Vincent Leonard Price Jr. was born on 27 May 1911, in St. Louis, Missouri USA, of English and Welsh descent. Vincent was an actor, best known for performing in numerous horror films, often with underlying humour which endeared him to audiences. He appeared in over 100 films, radio shows, television shows, and stage productions, and all of his efforts helped put his net worth to where it was when he passed away in 1993.

How rich is Vincent Price? As of early-2017, sources estimate a net worth that is at $5 million, mostly earned through a successful career in acting. He has two stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and was also an art collector. He was also a gourmet cook, and all of these achievements ensured the position of his wealth.

Price attended St. Louis Country Day School and after matriculating, went to Yale University, studying art history and graduating in 1933. He taught for a year and then decided to go to the University of London with the intention of getting a master’s degree. However, he was drawn to theater, and this led to him begin his acting career in 1935. One of his first productions was “Victoria Regina” in which he played Prince Albert.

Vincent started out as a character actor, and would gain some popularity in the 1944 film “Laura”. He would then be cast in “Wilson”, “The Song of Bernadette”, and “The Keys of the Kingdom”. One of his first horror film ventures was “Tower of London” and this would establish his path in the genre. His net worth started increasing at this point and he then starred in “The Invisible Man Returns”, continuing with more villainous roles in the 1940s including “The Bribe”, “The Long Night” and “The Web”.

In 1950, he then gained his first starring role in the biopic “The Baron of Arizona”, but during this time, he was very active on radio too, and was part of the show “The Saint” which aired from 1947 to 1951. In the 1950s, Price started to focus more on horror films and some of his projects during this time were “House of Wax”, “House on Haunted Hill”, and “Suspense”.

In the 1960s, Vincent played in a lot of low budget but successful films, elevating his net worth further. He appeared in several of Edgar Allan Poe adaptations including “Tales of Terror”, “The Raven’ and “The Tomb of Ligeia”. In 1964, he starred in the adaptation “The Last Man on Earth” which was based on the novel “I Am Legend”. However, he also starred in comedy films during this time including “Dr. Goldfoot and the Bikini Machine”, and played Egghead in the “Batman” television series, and would the go on to guest star in numerous television shows.

Later in his career, he starred in the radio horror series “The Price of Fear”, and was also cast in “The Abominable Dr. Phibes” as well as its sequel. His film work started to lessen during the mid-1970s, so he focused a lot on voice work. He also worked on stage, and would then star in the short lived television series “Time Express”. One of his most popular voice overs was the monologue on the Michael Jackson song “Thriller”. He also used his talents in the series “The 13 Ghosts of Scooby Doo”. One of his last projects was the film “Edward Scissorhands” – a year prior to the film’s release, he was inducted onto the St. Louis Walk of Fame.

For his personal life, it is known that Vincent married actress Edith Barrett and they had a son. His next marriage was to Mary Grant Price and they had a daughter. His last marriage was to Australian actress Coral Browne. Price suffered from Parkinson’s disease and emphysema, and died of lung cancer in 1993 at the age of 82.

Price amassed a large and expansive collection of art, and donated around 2,000 art pieces to establish the Vincent Price Art Museum in Monterey Park, California. He also sold around 50,000 fine art prints to the public, which included works from Rembrandt and Pablo Picasso. He was also a noted gourmet cook and authored several cookbooks.

#Fact
1He was awarded a Star on the St. Louis Walk of Fame on June 25, 1989.
2In what would have been a most memorable event, Charles Ludlam (The Ridiculous Theatrical Company, "The Mystery of Irma Vep") was to have directed a production of Shakespeare's ultra bloody "Titus Andronicus" at the New York Shakespeare Festival in Central Park, starring, guess who... Vincent Price, thereby fulfilling Vincent's long standing desire to play Shakespeare. Unfortunately, Ludlam died during the initial planning stage.
3Price was known as an art connoisseur, and was a champion of American Indian / Native American art in particular. Price was appointed to the Indian Arts and Crafts Board under Eisenhower, he supported the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and he has been the subject of discussions at the Museum of Contemporary Native Arts in Santa Fe.
4The 2013 song "Vincent Price" by the hard rock band Deep Purple is dedicated to him. Price was friends with the band, and in 1975, appeared on Roger Glover's live version of "The Butterfly Ball and the Grasshopper Feast" as a narrator.
5He was the visual inspiration for the original illustrations of the comic book superhero Doctor Strange/Stephen Strange (created in 1963). Price was 52 years old at the time. Strange's full name is Stephen Vincent Strange.
6During the 1970s, Price said that George C. Scott was his favorite current actor although Cary Grant (then retired) was his all-time favorite.
7When Lillian Gish first met him on The Whales of August (1987), she said, "I finally got my Prince Albert," a reference to "Victoria Regina".
8Price was scheduled by Universal to make his screen debut in Prescription for Romance (1937), but Kent Taylor replaced him. Next he was set for That Certain Age (1938), but was deemed too young and replaced by Melvyn Douglas.
9Although he turned down Jose Ferrer's offer to play one of the leads in "My Three Angels" on stage, he did consent to play the Duke of Buckingham in Ferrer's "Richard III" at New York's City Center in 1953.
10When Price filmed While the City Sleeps (1956), he became friends with Fritz Lang because of their mutual love of art.
11Was originally cast in Forever Amber (1947) but when filming was suspended after a month for further work on the script he was dropped and replaced with Richard Greene.
12In October 2013, Price was honored as being Turner Classic Movies Star of the Month.
13Was a staunch liberal Democrat.
14In 1948, Price joined Fanny Brice, Edward G. Robinson, and other art lovers to open his museum in Hollywood called the Modern Institute of Art. It closed within two years because of lack of funds.
15During breaks in the long filming The Song of Bernadette (1943), Price and former "Vicoria Regina" co-star George Macready opened an art gallery, which they called The Little Gallery.
16His father was president of a company that made jelly-beans and jawbreakers as well as Price's Baking Powder, which was sold to Royal in 1890.
17Price served for decades on the board of directors of the Los Angeles County Museum.
18In his later years, when asked for his autograph, he would often sign "Dolores Del Rio" instead of his actual name. When once asked why, he replied, in complete seriousness, "I promised her on her deathbed that I would do what I could to keep her name alive!".
19He was awarded 2 Stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for Motion Pictures at 6201 Hollywood Boulevard; and for Television at 6501 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California.
20Made his acting debut at London's Gate Theatre.
21Was a prime mover in the success of the La Jolla Playhouse in California, starring in many of their productions, including "The Winslow Boy" and "Billy Budd".
22Gave over 800 performances in the United States and Australia between 1977 and 1980 in his one-man show "Diversions & Delights" (invariably to standing ovations), playing Oscar Wilde in 1899 (set at the Parisian concert hall in the Rue de Pepinier). The play was written by John Gay and directed by Joseph Hardy. Price was at his brilliant best, particularly at smaller, more intimate venues.
23Vincent once told the story of a middle-aged woman who came up to him while on a flight to Barcelona for a fantasy film festival. She was quite excited and said, "Oh sir, could I have your autograph? I can't tell you how many years I have enjoyed your films, Mr. Karloff." Always the perfect gentlemen and not wanting to disappoint her, Vincent brought Boris Karloff back to life and gave the woman an autograph fifteen years after the actor had died.
24His likeness appeared on such Milton Bradley games as "Hangman" and "Shrunken Head Apple Sculpture" in the 1970s.
25A transcript of an on-stage Q&A with Price (from a 1990s Fangoria convention) appears in Tom Weaver's book "Attack of the Monster Movie Makers" (McFarland & Co., 1994).
26Is remembered by some Canadians for his narration on The Hilarious House of Frightenstein (1971).
27Won $32,000 in an appearance on the game show The $64,000 Question (1955).
28Had played the Devil in The Story of Mankind (1957).
29Price voted for Republican candidate Wendell Willkie in the 1940 presidential election, since both his parents were conservatives. Shortly thereafter, his political views altered completely, and he later became one of the most active liberal Democrats in Hollywood.
30His role in Edward Scissorhands (1990) was intended to be much larger, but since Price was very ill from emphysema and Parkinson's disease he was only able to appear in two scenes.
31Converted to Catholicism shortly after marrying Coral Browne, a Roman Catholic. According to Price's daughter, the Australian-born Browne then became an American citizen for him.
32At times, he struggled to get roles early in his career due to his 6' 4" frame, as producers often avoid casting actors who are much taller than their leading men.
33He would often attend showings of his films in costumes; often to play pranks on moviegoers.
34Was a member of the family that started the company that makes Magic Baking Powder.
35According to Price, when he and Peter Lorre went to view Bela Lugosi's body at Lugosi's funeral, Lorre, upon seeing Lugosi dressed in his famous Dracula cape, quipped, "Do you think we should drive a stake through his heart just in case?".
36In 1990, Price was hired by Walt Disney Imagineering to voice the role of the Phantom for "Phantom Manor", a new ride for the upcoming Euro Disneyland, scheduled to open in 1992. He was given a French script, but the takes were so bad, the entire performance was deemed unusable. After working on the French script for over three hours, Craig Fleming, who adapted the script and directed the recording sessions, gave him an English version of the script. Price recorded the entire piece in two takes. The English recordings were placed in the attraction, but after several months of operation, Euro Disney (the company that owns and operates the resort) felt there was not enough French in Euro Disneyland. So by 1993, in an attempt to add more French to the park, Price's narration was removed from the attraction and replaced by the French spiel, this time recorded by Gérard Chevalier. Price's narration can be found on a Disney Haunted Mansion CD. The CD, which contains a full ride-through of the attraction, claims Price's narration was "never used at Disneyland Paris", but that's because the park was still called Euro Disneyland when it was used. Today, the park is now known as Parc Disneyland (as of 2002) and, although his narration is long gone, one part of his performance remains in Phantom Manor: his laugh. Although the spoken dialog of the Phantom character was changed, Price's original recordings of the Phantom's evil laughter still remain intact, inside the attraction.
37Had played the Spirit of the Nightmare in Alice Cooper's television special Alice Cooper: The Nightmare (1975).
38In the 1960s, Price and Peter Lorre starred as crimefighting antique dealers in the unsold pilot, "Collector's Item".
39In 1951, Price founded the Vincent Price Gallery and Art Foundation on the campus of the East Los Angeles Community College. It is celebrating its 45th year.
40Close friends with Cassandra Peterson, the actress whose most famous character is Elvira, Mistress of the Dark.
41Had provided quasi-"rap" voice-over for Michael Jackson's music video Michael Jackson: Thriller (1983).
42He attended the opening night of the first production of Richard O'Brien's The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975).
43He was a longtime member of St. Victor's, and his wife Coral Browne was buried there with a Mozart Requiem Mass accompanied by a full orchestra.
44Price's second wife, Mary Grant, gave birth to his daughter Victoria Price in 1962.
45He starred in "How to Make a Movie", a short film that was included in the "Vincent Price: Moviemaking the Hollywood Way", a home movie outfit sold by Sears, Roebuck and Company.
46Charlton Heston starred in The Omega Man (1971) and Will Smith starred in I Am Legend (2007), the remakes of Price's The Last Man on Earth (1964). Prior to this, Heston and Price worked together in The Ten Commandments (1956).
47He often expressed an interest in doing Shakespeare, which is why Theatre of Blood (1973) was one of his favorite roles.
48He received a Bachelor's degree in art history from Yale University and wrote a syndicated art column in the 1960s. An avid art collector, he founded the Vincent Price Gallery on the campus of East Los Angeles College and encouraged others to develop a personal passion for art.
49Had appeared in eight movies with "house" in the title -- most of them horror movies -- including The House of the Seven Gables (1940), House of Wax (1953), House on Haunted Hill (1959), House of Usher (1960), House of 1,000 Dolls (1967), The Hilarious House of Frightenstein (1971), Madhouse (1974), and House of the Long Shadows (1983).
50Attended and graduated from the St. Louis Country Day School in St. Louis, Missouri.
51Made a short speech about the black widow on Alice Cooper's album "Welcome to My Nightmare".
52In 1964, at the request of a personal friend, he narrated a brief history of Tombstone, Arizona (titled, "Tombstone, The Town Too Tough to Die"), for use in the diorama at the site of the O.K. Corral gunfight. He reportedly recorded the 20-minute piece in a single take at a recording studio in Hollywood, and when asked about his fee, asked for his pal, the owner of the exhibit at the time, to buy him lunch. Price never visited Tombstone but his narration is still used in the diorama.
53Although always a gentleman, he was considered an eccentric and often engaged in over-the-top theatrics while discussing his favorite subjects, cooking and poetry.
54Had started an egg-throwing fight while making a guest spot as the villain Egghead on the television series Batman (1966).
55His ashes were scattered off the Californian coast of Malibu together with his favorite gardening hat.
56Host of BBC Radio's "The Price of Fear" (1973-1975, 1983).
57He was the Wednesday night host for CBS Radio's "Sears Mystery Theater" (1979). He was still Wednesday's host when it became "The Mutual Radio Theater" on Mutual Radio (1980).
58Had his own mail-order book club in the 1970s, "Vincent Price Books", specializing in mystery and detective novels.
59Price's first wife, Edith Barrett, gave birth to his son Vincent Barret Price in 1940.
60Shortly before his death, he said that one of his most favorite roles was the voice of Professor Ratigan in the Disney feature The Great Mouse Detective (1986), especially since two original songs had been written for him.
61Was notoriously superstitious. He once joked that he kept a horseshoe, a crucifix and a mezzuza on his front door.
62An avid gourmet chef, he wrote a number of cookbooks.
63Price and Christopher Lee were born on the same day (May 27th) and Peter Cushing was born on the 26th. All three are considered legends of the horror genre, and all three appeared together in Scream and Scream Again (1970) and House of the Long Shadows (1983).

#Quote
1I played so many gentle men at the beginning of my career that I certainly wanted to play some villains and so I got kind of stuck in villains.
2Hollywood's worst fault is typecasting. John Wayne, Cary Grant, everyone who's been a success - we all had the same problem. And they tell me I'm too important to play small character roles; you can't win!
3[on Gene Tierney] Gene was the most underrated actress that we ever had! I've known her since she was about 17; and I adored her! She really wasn't a great beauty or sex idol. When you look at Laura (1944), and people ask why it has lasted, I think it's because of Gene Tierney. There's no way she can look dated. Her hair looks modern, her clothes. She didn't have a great body, but had a body that wore clothes well.
4[on accepting the role of Baka in The Ten Commandments (1956)] You aren't a movie actor until you've been in a DeMille film.
5[on House of Wax (1953) and director André De Toth] It's almost my favorite Hollywood story. Where else in the world would you hire a man with one eye to direct a picture in 3-D?
6Suddenly in the '50s, a whole new group of actors came out: Marlon Brando, James Dean and Paul Newman, who were very moody and realistic. So actors like myself and Basil Rathbone and so on didn't really fit into those realistic dramas and we began to do costume pictures. This was really the only place we could go on working if we wanted to survive as actors. Most of the things of my later career have been costume pictures. They require a certain knowledge of the language, they require enunciation and a poetic approach to the language. Really, the one thing we have over the apes is our language, isn't it? That's about all.
7The horror thriller offers the serious actor unique opportunities to test his ability to make the unbelievable believable.
8The wonderful thing about Hawaii is, there, it doesn't take any words at all to say "I love you." You can say it with a pineapple and a twenty.
9I hate being old and ill! Don't get old if you can avoid it!
10What's important about an actor is his acting, not his life.
11Doing a religious picture is a boring thing because everybody is on their best behavior - hoping for the keys to the kingdom, I guess.
12I sometimes feel that I'm impersonating the dark unconscious of the whole human race. I know this sounds sick, but I love it.
13A lot of the recent actresses look and act like my niece. Now, she's a good girl, but I wouldn't pay to see her.
14A man who limits his interests limits his life.
15[Tim Burton's Vincent (1982)] was immortality - better than a star on Hollywood Boulevard.
16"Gothic" is just a word recalling a multitude of sins!
17I don't play monsters. I play men besieged by fate and out for revenge.
18Someone called actors "sculptors in snow". Very apt. In the end, it's all nothing.
