    From the Smithsonian Archives of American Art (Oral History transcripts):


    Interview with Vincent Price
    Conducted by Paul Karlstrom
    In Los Angeles, California
    August 6, 1992


    Preface
    The following oral history transcript is the result of a tape-recorded interview with Vincent Price on August 6, 1992. The interview took place in Los Angeles, California, and was conducted by Paul Karlstrom for the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution.


    Interview
    Tape 1, side A (30-minute tape sides)
    [At the time of this interview, Mr. Price was quite ill with Parkinson’s disease—Ed.]

    PAUL KARLSTROM: [Archives of American—Ed.] Art, Smithsonian Institution, an interview with Vincent Price on August 6, 1992, at his home in the Hollywood Hills—I guess this area is called—up at the top of Doneny, in a home that’s literally covered with art objects. This is the first session in a projected series. We’ll see how it goes over a period of time, dealing with Mr. Price’s career, and particularly his involvement with the arts, specifically and primarily in Southern California. This is Tape one, side A, and the interviewer for the Archives is Paul Karlstrom, West Coast Regional Director.
    So I think that we can get started. Well, I should say that this is a pleasure, an honor. I’m pleased to be here, and I’m glad that I’m the one that gets to do this interview. You of course, Vincent, have been prominent in the entertainment industry for a good number of years—film and television—and I think that this aspect of your professional life is quite well known. I think less known is your involvement which you described earlier, as we were chatting, as sometimes almost interfering with your livelihood, and that is as a patron, a collector, of the visual arts, involved with a number of organizations and efforts on a volunteer supportive basis. And so this is what is what we are going to focus on in this interview. his doesn’t mean that we can’t of course digress a bit and talk about your film career as well, because that is the context in which you were working. But at any rate, this interview is intended to deal with Vincent Price and the visual arts, and specifically your observations of developments over the years.

    Sumo TV is perhaps the most RANDOM TV station on Sky.

    I love it. Not seen any shows on it, just a load of old retro 50's American educational / propaganda films. A bit like an American version of Mr Chumley-Warner...

    http://www.sumo.tv/movies.php

    You can watch The Last Man Alive, from the link.

    Just curious, was this remade with Charlton Heston in the 70's as the Omega Man? Saw that on Sci-Fi and it reminds me of that.

    Enjoy the film.

    Yes, though the author of I Am Legend, Richard Matheson, disliked the Italian production and found Vincent Price terribly miscast, the first movie adaptation stays true to the grim, bleak and pessimistic tone of the novel, also the storyline is nicely followed, deviating in the ending wherein Robert Neville realizes that he has become to the vampiric mutants, what vampires are for us: a legend, that imbues fear and the most formidable and damned of his species, like Stoker's Dracula.

    An assesment of The Omega Man pitched against an era that had
    witnessed the Manson murders and lived in anxieties about an outbreak of a global A-B-C war:
