1950
The Baron of Arizona as James Addison Reavis

 
A very unconventional western by director Samuel Fuller, the film is now a cult favorite.    

 Champagne for Caesar as Burnbridge Waters

The first of Price's string of great comedy performances.  It gave him the opportunity to act with his idol, Ronald Colman. Price played hyperactive soap tycoon Burnbridge Waters. Art Linkletter, another life-long friend, played obnoxious game show host Happy Hogan.
   
  Program from a short retrospective of Price's films (signed by Art Linkletter) held a couple years before Vincent's death.  This one details Champagne For Caesar.

1951 
His Kind of Woman as Mark Cardigan

     

 
Adventures of Captain Fabian as George Brissac

1953 
House of Wax as Professor Henry Jarrod

The film that started everything!  Vincent Price: horror great was born. Price as Henry Jarrod, an artist with a tender spot for beauty. But after a fire leaves him crippled and maimed, his love of the horrific grows.

Henry Jarrod in his wax museum. The film has been re-released many times through the years, in its original 3D.  Here's an ad from the 1980s. Roy Roberts about to meet his doom.

Director Andre De Toth and stars Phyllis Kirk and Vincent Price in a gag shot.  The funniest thing was that De Toth had but one eye and couldn't see 3D! The cover page of the film's script.  Note the original title The Wax Works.  The movie was a remake of the 1933 film Mystery of the Wax Museum. The cover of a French souvenir booklet for the film.  Images of the killer's face were kept under wraps.

 

 

The fantastic horror artist Basil Gogos painted this portrait of the horribly scarred Henry Jarrod for Famous Monsters of Filmland.    

1954 
The Mad Magician as Don Gallico/Gallico the Great
