The 13 Days of HOMO-ween: Vincent Price Reads Edgar Allen Poe’s “The Raven” – Video

 

Just in case someone is wondering how this fits into HOMO-ween.  According to Full Service: My Adventures in Hollywood and the Secret Sex Lives of the Stars by Scotty Bowers, dear Vincent had a very happy marriage to his wife British actress Coral Browne for both their careers sake.

Recently in her book, “Vincent Price: A Daughter’s Biography,” Victoria Price also explored the many facets of her famous father.

“Everybody asks me was your dad bisexual, was he bisexual,” said Price. “And it was Roddy McDowall who said to me, you know, we didn’t have any idea what bisexuality meant in that sense, and if we didn’t know, then how can we know the answer to that question.”

“He married a bisexual woman [British actress Coral Browne and] and everybody assumed their marriage was a fraud,” offered Price. “It wasn’t a fraud. It was a totally sexual relationship but they were two people with very open minded approaches as to what life should look like. And that to me – people who lived this truth in all aspects of their lives – they should be heroes to every community.”

  1. I’m from St. Louis, Missouri, where he’s from. His daughter has said that he may, in fact, have been bisexual. I’m sure there’s a local elderly gay guy though, that could fill us in the real dirt about the guy.
