The Fantastic Films of Vincent Price #18
In this episode Dr. Gangrene takes a look at two Price films, both from 1948 - Abbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein and Up in Central Park. In Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein Price "appears" very briefly, in the closing sequence of this classic monster rally film. In Up in Central Park Price plays the part of famed crime lord Boss Tweed, in this big screen adaptation of the Broadway play of the same name.
In this series Dr. Gangrene, Physician of Fright and Award-winning Nashville horror host (and writer) explores the films of the merchant of menace, Vincent Price, in chronological order from first to last, approaching them from a scholarly perspective, offering commentary, review and criticism.
