Vincent Price

Born: 1911-05-27 - Died: 1993-10-25
Cause of Death:
Lung Cancer

Death Summary: After many years of being a smoker, lung cancer got Mr. Price in the long run. He had suffered from emphysema and Parkinson's disease for a while, but it took the big C to take down great horror icon.

He was 82 when he passed away in Los Angeles, California.

Who was Vincent Price : Vincent Leonard Price, Jr. will always be known for starring in a slew of (mostly) horror and sci-fi movies ranging all the way from the 30s to the 90s. Now that's an impressive body of work.

Some of his most famous films included The Fly, The Abominable Dr. Phibes, House on Haunted Hill, House of Wax, The Last Man on Earth (based on the novel I Am Legend by Richard Matheson, which was recently remade with Will Smith in Price's role), and Masque of the Red Death (based on the Edgar Allan Poe story). One of his last performances was in Tim Burton's Johnny Depp vehicle, Edward Scissorhands.

Michael Jackson normally gets the credit for some of Price's most recognizable and famous work of all time. That would of course be the "rap" as it's called in the colossal hit song Thriller.
