Burning Question #22: Hotter than the pavement outside (with a bit of horror)

It is too hot to even think right now – about 107 F outside and the air conditioning isn’t what it should be…so I’m inspired by something even hotter than the pavement in front of my house – Vincent Price.

Vincent Price is one of my favorite actors. He was wonderful in the dark mystery “Laura.” I saw him live in the early 80’s as Oscar Wilde.

Oh and that voice. He had such a wonderful mesmerizing voice.

The weirdest thing (something I just found out) is that he played Mormon Church founder Joseph Smith in one of his early movies. I kid you not.

Of course anyone who was around in the 1970’s will remember all of the Hammer films and other “creature features” of late night TV along with Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee.

From Wikipedia:

Vincent Leonard Price Jr. (May 27, 1911 – October 25, 1993) was an American actor, known for his performances in horror films. His career spanned other genres, including film noir, drama, mystery, thriller, and comedy. He appeared on stage, television, radio, and more than one hundred films. 

Price was an art collector and consultant, with a degree in art history, lecturing and writing books on the subject. Additionally, he was the founder of the eponymous Vincent Price Art Museum in California.

An example of his outspoken political action came when he concluded an old-time radio episode of The Saint, entitled “Author of Murder”, which aired on NBC Radio on July 30, 1950. He denounced racial and religious prejudice as a form of poison and claimed Americans must actively fight against it because racial and religious prejudice within the United States fuels support for the nation’s enemies.

Price was supportive of his daughter, who came out and was critical of Anita Bryant‘s anti-gay campaign in the 1970s. He was an honorary board member of PFLAG and among the first celebrities to appear in public service announcements discussing AIDS with the public

Not only was he an amazing actor and dad but he was also an accomplished cook and had his own cooking show in the UK.

You might only remember Vincent Price from all of the old Poe related and vampire movies. Watch this and you’ll change your mind (click here).

Warning ladies: You’ll want to watch it over and over and over. You’ll swoon for sure.

Halloween Hotties: Literary Vampires

vamp classic vbook4 vd books vbook hot Vbook vbook2 Vr&J vbook 7 vbook5 vbook 5    creepies images-1 nightcoach vampire empire

I love book cover art so no season of Halloween Hotties can be without Vampire Book Cover Art.

I’ve been designing book covers professionally for years, but unfortunately I’ve never had the opportunity to design covers for Vampire novels. Maybe…one day.

There are so many wonderful authors who are fortunate to have great cover artists/models/photographers/illustrators on their team.

So enjoy… and I think I’m going to be reading a few hot Vampire stories during the upcoming cold fall nights!

______________________________________

FYI – Passion’s Prisms and Creepies are both from the WPaD group – the publishing group I’m involved with. Both of these books include my stories as well as those from authors with impressive story telling talents. Both books are available on Amazon. Portions of the proceeds go to MS research.

For more information on Night Coach CLICK HERE (and be prepared to laugh out loud.)

And PLEASE if you have any suggestions about Hot Vampire book covers (or any Halloween related hotties on book covers) let us know in the comment section and feel free to add a link (even if it is your own book – we’d love for you to share.)

 Note: I added Creepies, not because it is “hot” but because it is a great book cover, a great book and I think it is really cute and sweet in a scary Halloweenie sort of way.

Halloween Hotties: Bruce Campbell

Bruce Campbell 7A lot of people know this guy from Evil Dead or Burn Notice…

That hair, that chin, that face…

But no matter what he is in Bruce Campbell is ALWAYS noticed, and is one smoking hot Halloween Hottie!

No the smoke isn’t from fighting off zombies and other creatures; it is from the sheer presence of Bruce Campbell.

Yes, indeed. These photos don’t do him justice.  You have to see him in action and hear that voice.

Whew, turn off the smoke alarm and bring out the hoses!

Halloween Hotties #5: Ghosts (part 1)

You know how I feel about ghosts in real life, but in the movies we can forget the fact that they are rude and make rude hand gestures and act like I’m the one people are creeped out about. Hey, I’m just a Vampire, not some weird thing without a real body. Anyway…

The hottest ghost ever was played by Rex Harrison in the Ghost and Mrs. Muir.

If you haven’t seen this movie you MUST see it before Halloween. Just trust me on this one. Oh my goodness!

But for just fun and naughty games there is the ghost in High Spirits played by Niam Neeson. Yowza.

Not all ghosts are hot but you gotta love this guy!

And yes, you know my history with ghosts or one particular ghost… I haven’t seen him around lately.

Just think of ghosts as hot guys who aren’t really there.
