  1. That brings back some memories, lot of dances. I absolutely love those old Vincent Price movies and Tim I believe we are dating ourselves.

    Three of my favorites

    1) The orginal fly
    2) The Tingler
    3) House on a Haunted Hill

      Vincent Price is one of the most talented actors to come out of mid-20th century Hollywood, Pat. He got a rep for horror but was very good at leading man roles as well. When you look at his early stills like this one you can see why he’d be cast in them.

      • I agree Tim, you’re absolutely right he was a ladies men and one of the original true leading men. Like a lot of actors at that time it was not till he got older that he began to make horror films and move into this genre. Which needless to say he excelled in as well. Then unlike many of his time he was able to move effectively into a new arena called Television, as well as he played his character in a few cartoon series, like the Scooby Dooby Doo adventures.

    I just watched Thriller for the first time. For a good bit of my childhood we didn’t have a TV so most of the 1980s went right over my head. I don’t think I’ve ever seen any other Michael Jackson video either. I remember a buzz going around my school about Thriller. A few of my friends had MJ posters on the walls of their bedrooms. For me the 1980s was Sandy Patty, Larnelle Harris, and Steve Green.

      I saw both Sandy Patty and Steve Green in concert in the 80s!. He was the opener and she the headliner and it was a great show. I saw him again in concert a few years ago at mount Hermon in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Still a wonderful singer and humble man.

    Vincent Price had class. I love how he never thought things like this were beneath him as an “ac-TOR.” He just went for it and had a wonderful time.
