Happy Halloween from Back2Stonewall.com! – Vincent Price Reads Edgar Allen Poe’s “The Raven” – Video

 

In case anyone is wondering how Vincent price fits on Back2Stonewall.com, 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 not only for love but also for both their careers sake.

Also recently in her book,“Vincent Price: A Daughter’s Biography ‘ Victoria Price explored the many facets and secrets of her famous father.

“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.”

“Everybody asks me was your dad bisexual?”  said Price. But not in the strictest sense of the word according to his daughter. “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.”

“But I would like to say something here because I might as well,” she continued. “I am as close to certain as I can be that my dad had physically intimate relationships with men. I know for 100 percent fact that my dad was completely loving and supportive of LGBT people.”

Price recalls her father’s 1977 one-man-show where he played the openly gay Oscar Wilde to great acclaim and rebuffed the antigay Anita Bryant efforts of the day. In television interviews, Vincent Price said Wilde had already written a play about Ms. Bryant:  A Woman of No Importance.

  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.
