Vincent Price as Fortunato Lucresi from "The Black Cat" segment of Roger Corman's delightful 1962 compilation film "Tales of Terror."
Here is another portrait of Vincent Price, I'm sure I'll end up do many more, what can I say, he has one of my favorite faces to draw. I remember seeing "Tales of Terror" when I was a kid and getting totally creeped out by certain images in the film. These images stuck with me, and it wasn't until a recent viewing that I realized where they came from.
What a fun little film, three short Corman films based on Poe and all staring Vincent Price, hot could you possibly go wrong?
One interesting piece of trivia: Vincent Price based his portrayal of Fortunato on Ernie Kovacs's television character Percy Dovetonsils.
