Fascinating book, about one of the more interesting film personalities. All the photos looked like second- or third-generation photocopies, but that detracts little from the book. It also needed another pass through the copy-editing process to clean up some minor problems.

It was still a very interesting and fun book to read, and will likely be re-read at some point.

Four stars because it had a lot of funny stories and you get a nice sense of who Vincent Price was. I wish I could meet Vincent Price! I look forward to watching more of his movies. The only sad thing was whomever edited the book didn't catch a lot of typos, etc.

Great anecdotes and info! I could've done without the synopses of some of the better know movies, and the book as a whole could do with some proofreading.
