A-Z TRIVIA WEDNESDAY: THE ABOMINABLE DR. PHIBES

Joseph Cotten would grumble on the set that he had to remember and deliver lines, while Vincent Price’s were all to be post-dubbed. Price responded, “Yes, but I still know them, Joe.” In fact, Price was well-known in Hollywood for his ability to memorize all of the characters’ lines in a given production, not just his own.

  1. Okay, it’s Vincent Price so I HAD to come and look! I’m glad to hear his memory was so darn astute but I am not surprised. I remember this was one of the movies of his I did not know about until I was cleaning out a closet at my folks house. Was I in for a shock when I found the record album. The entire thing scared me, including the idea of Chico Marx singing in it. (An impersonator, I’m sure.) I’ve never seen the whole thing, but the bits I did see still scare me when I think about them.

    Once upon a time I used to seek out his movies online and do a Vincent Price movie of the week deal, some of which I have, some I still don’t but would like. I’m afraid Dr. Phibes isn’t one of them. It’s tooooo scary, even for me! *shudders*
