The Films of Vincent Price and Stanley Kramer: Next on TVC

Singer/actress Kat Kramer and author Joel Eisner will join us on the next edition of TV CONFIDENTIAL, Friday at 7pm ET and PT on Share-a-Vision Radio.

The undisputed King of Horror Movies from the late 1950s through the early 1970s, Vincent Price was also a fixture on television throughout his career, including hundreds of appearances on Hollywood Squares, plus memorable guest roles on such classic series as Get Smart, The Brady Bunch, F Troop, Columbo and Batman.

Best known for playing heinous characters on-screen, off camera Vincent Price was a gentile, cultured man known for his passion for art, gourmet food, the theatre, and a sardonic sense of humor. These attributes, and more, come alive throughout the pages of The Price of Fear: The Film Career of Vincent Price, In His Words, a wonderful new biography by Joel Eisner. The only authorized biography of Price, Joel’s book features a foreword by Peter Cushing, remembrances by the likes of Roger Corman, Richard Matheson and Jack Nicholson, and a wealth of stories on just about every stage, film and television production in which Vincent appeared — all told in the actor’s own words. Joel Eisner will join us in our second hour.

Kat Kramer will join us in our first hour as we continue our coverage of the centennial celebration of the career of Stanley Kramer. Kat is founder of Kat Kramer’s Films That Change the World, a series of motion picture screenings that raise awareness about important social issues. The fifth anniversary screening of Kat’s series will be a showing of the documentary Fallout at the Sunset Gower Studios in Los Angeles on Wednesday, Nov. 13. Fallout is about the making of On the Beach, the 1959 film directed by Stanley Kramer, which was based on the novel by Nevil Shute. The Nov. 13 screening will mark the U.S. premiere of the documentary.

We’ll talk to Kat about Fallout, but we’ll also ask about the first annual Stanley Kramer Film Festival, which will take place Nov. 15-17 at the Camelot Theatres in Palm Springs, California. The lineup will include screenings of The Defiant Ones, Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner, The Wild One, Judgment at Nuremberg, The Caine Mutiny and It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World, plus panel discussions, live performances and more.
