TOMB OF LIGEIA Star Toasts Vincent Price in Video Tribute
Elizabeth Shepherd, the beautiful British co-star of the final Vincent Price/Roger Corman collaboration TOMB OF LIGEIA (1965) had been invited to be a guest of honor at the recent Vincentennial, the Vincent Price 100th Birthday Celebration here in Price’s hometown of St. Louis last month but she is still a working actress, had committed to a play, and was unable to accept the invitation. I interviewed her on May 2nd for We Are Movie Geeks and that interview can be found HERE. She also filmed a four-minute testimonial toasting Vincent Price on the centennial of his birth that we showed after a 35mm screening of THE TOMB OF LIGEIA on May 21st at The Hi-Pointe Theater that was preceded by an on-stage interview with director Roger Corman moderated by Video Watchdog‘s Tim Lucas. Thanks to British Vincent Price superfan Peter Fuller for posting this to Youtube and a big thanks to Charles Lum, a friend in New York who went to Ms Shepherd’s home to film this.
