Underrated Performer of the Week: Vincent Price
I love having a spot on the Classic Film & TV Cafe for Underrated Performers! Having recently viewed Champagne for Caesar, I relished seeing Price shine as the scene-stealing Burnbridge Waters. He showed a wonderful comedic versatility. I have to admit to wanting to borrow the idea of "being on another plane" of existence during a tedious business meeting, too. Though he will probably be remembered most often for his horror films, Price was also quite effective as the undeserving namby-pamby fiance of Laura.
