The Alternate Movie Title Game (Vincent Price Edition)

Here are the rules: We will provide an "alternate title" for a Vincent Price film and ask you to name the actual film. Most of these are pretty easy. Please answer no more than three questions per day so others can play. You may have an answer other than the intended one--just be able to defend it!

1.  A Lady's Portrait.

2.  $10,000 for the Night.

3.  Morgan.

4.  City Beneath the Sea (might be a hard one!).

5.  Dirty Waters.

6.  Prospero's Ball.

7.  The Great Swindle.

8.  The Plagues of Egypt.

9.  Sisters By the Sea.

10. Die, Critics, Die!

11. The Man Who Vanished.

12. The Spider Web.

13. Robur the Conqueror.

14. The Celestial Tribunal.

15. The Devious Professor Ratigan.


  1. 1 Laura
    2 House on Haunted Hill
    8 The Ten Commandments

    1. Great start to this month's game, Thomas! 1 and 2 are correct, but there's a better answer for 8.

    2. The Abominable Dr. Phibes of course

    1. Well done, Sue! I thought that was one of the more difficult ones as it's just a scene near the end of the movie--albeit a memorable scene!

    1. Right again. One of Disney's better animated movies of the 1980s.

  4. 6. The Masque of the Red Death
    7. The Baron of Arizona
    10. Theatre of Blood

    1. You are correct, Jerome! I think The Baron of Arizona is one of Vincent Price's most intriguing films.

  5. 6. The Masque of the Red Death
    9. The Whales of August
    10. Theater of Blood

  6. 3. The Last Man on Earth
    13. Master of the World
    14. The Story of Mankind

    1. Right on all three! The Story of Mankind isn't shown much anymore.

  7. Alternate titles still needing to be identified: 4 (fairly obscure), 5, 8, and 11.

  8. 5. Champagne For Caesar
    8. Abominable Dr. Phibes
    11. The Mad Magician

  9. Nice job, Ron! 5 and 8 are correct. There's a better answer for 11.

    1. You are right and that’s a hard one. (Remember, though, three guesses per day, please.)

  11. That wraps up this month's game. Thanks to everyone who played. Honestly, you folks are pretty smart!

  12. There are numerous thoughts of carrying on with a good life. In any case, what is reality? Carrying on with a good and cheerful life isn't about the material things throughout everyday life. Indeed, they fulfill us at some point. However, they disappear. The genuine article in encountering the good daily routine is the means by which you experience it.
