I have been in the uniquely fortunate position to be raised by someone born in 1928. Growing up in Southern California in the 80's and 90's you would never know what Hollywood had been. It's a cesspool now, and has been for a while( if you're thinking of visiting, yeah don't expect too much unless you like seeing homeless people peeing on walls or beautiful old architecture marred by graffiti. Not bitter at all am I?). But my dad first came to LA in the 40's, and he took me down those streets and showed me what it had been. I watched the old movies with him and listened to his stories of watching them in the theaters when they had just been released. It was truly magical and pretty much ruined me for Hollywood as it is today.
But because of this I felt like showcasing my all time favorite actor here- Vincent Price.
The King of Horror. The Master of Creepy.
A man who, when special effects were rudimentary at best, could make thousands shiver with a raised eyebrow.
My favorite movie of his would have to be a toss up between
What is yours?
