Vincent Price was also a loving father to his daughter Victoria, who was born shortly before he turned 51, at the height of his popularity. Though the star's busy film schedule took him in and out of his young daughter's life, he was always a larger-than-life presence and, simply, her father. The deep bond between father and daughter managed to survive the machinations of Price's third wife, the elegant British actress Coral Browne, who resented the close relationship between Price and his children and grandchildren. After Browne's death, Price and his daughter spent over a year taping conversations that would form the basis of this compelling biography-cum-memoir.
In writing about the father she adored, Victoria Price reveals a man complex, human, and humorous. An actor of range, less than one-third of the movies in which he appeared were in the horror genre. As a pre-war anti-Nazi sympathizer, he was greylisted during the Red Scare of the 1950s until, in a desperate gesture, he signed a secret oath that saved his career.

Very good Price
Written by his daughter I was pleased and a bit surprised on the depth of her research and the very candid and insightful story she relayed. A fine biographer
What a interesting man her father was.
