The Price of Doing Business!

Maniacal Movie Poster Monday #18!

It's a whole week dedicated to the "Vincentennial" - actor Vincent Price's 100th birthday celebration, Friday, May 27th, 2011!

One of the ways business is done in the entertainment industry is the selling of the product...

...did someone say Movie Posters? 

Let's take a look at some Vincent Price posters across the decades of his long career...

Let's start in the 1940's...

The Invisible Man Returns  (Universal Studios, 1940)

Only his fourth movie!

Let's jump ahead 20+ years...to the 1960's...

The Masque of the Red Death  (American International, 1964)

One of his best, in Roger Corman's 'Poe Cycle.'

and then let's do another 20+ year jump...to the 1980's...

The Great Mouse Detective  (Walt Disney Productions, 1986)
Disney didn't promote their voice artists back in the day - but that's Vinnie's villainous character Professor Ratigan center stage bottom. Price took great joy in this one.
And that will wrap up more fun with Vincent Price! Until next post, you Can Poke Me With A Fork, Cause I Am Outta Here!
