Vincent Price in his garden overlooking Los Angeles. I think of my late friend frequently, but always on this, the day after the Oscars when we would faithfully get on the phone and review the previous night's ceremony. Of course, his observations were those of an industry professional, mine just a star-struck fan's. During one such call a few years after this photo was taken, he told me that he had been too sick to attend the Oscar party he'd been invited to. "Audrey and Elizabeth were there." (What!? How sick would I have to be to skip a party with the Misses Hepburn and Taylor?) "I've always liked Audrey," he continued. "Elizabeth I've always thought was, well, tacky."
