Iconic actor Vincent Price’s long career stretched over 55 years, beginning in 1938 at the height of classical Hollywood cinema, reaching its apex with his legendary horror films of the 1960s and ’70s, and concluding in his later years with abundant voice work and fine performances in “The Whales of August” and “Edward Scissorhands.” Although sometimes regarded as a figure of camp – which he playfully encouraged in some contexts – Price was nonetheless an actor of real substance and range, and Vincentennial will provide a thorough exploration his life and film legacy.
