    He was married three times and divorced twice.
    He was type-cast as a mad man in all of his horror movies.
    He once said: 'I don't play monsters. I play men besieged by fate and out for revenge.'
    In the 1960's, Price and Peter Lorre starred as crime fighting antique dealers in the unsold pilot, 'Collector's Item.'
    He was notoriously superstitious.
    He once joked that he kept a horseshoe, a crucifix and a mezuza on his front door.

    He was an avid gourmet chef, and he wrote a number of cookbooks.
    According to Price, when he and Peter Lorre went to view Bela Lugosi's body during Bela's funeral, Lorre, upon seeing Lugosi dressed in his famous Dracula cape, quipped, 'Do you think we should drive a stake through his heart just in case?'
    In 1951, Price founded the Vincent Price Gallery and Art Foundation on the campus of the East Los Angeles Community College.
    He enjoyed Shakespeare, and did many films based upon Shakespeare's writings.
    When asked why he agreed to appear in some of the terrible films he made, he explained without apology that as an actor, it was his job to act.
