very chilling, very thrilling

It's time again for The Shelf's weekly Double Feature Chiller Thriller! This week's guest star is that Master of Macabre himself, Vincent Price. Vincent Price in real life was very urbane, generous and very nice man. He had a varied career in films, doing comedy, film noir, etc until he started doing suspenseful horror films. Audiences delighted in his work and directors found he had a unique quality that could bring humor, dread and a literacy to films. He is best known for a lot of Edgar Allan Poe films and of course, The Fly. Today we feature some of his lesser known radio work. First up: Lux Radio Theater adaptations of some of his best film noir and then Vincent Price starring in several episodes of Suspense! Again it's a double, double feature!

Turn the lights low, grab the popcorn and your significant other, but with different hands. No one likes to hold buttery hands.

Lux Theater:
1. VP in Dragonwyck
2. Price stars in the classic Laura

1. Episode: The Strange Death Of Charles Umberstein
2. Episode: The Pit and the Pendulum

Oh, I know it's a penny here and a penny there, but look at me. I worked myself up from nothing to a state of extreme poverty.

I sometimes feel that I'm impersonating the dark unconscious of the whole human race. I know this sounds sick, but I love it.
