    For what it's worth, Vincent Price considered DRAGONWYCK his finest performance.

    Thanks Timothy! That's really the greatest complement of all!

    I can understand why. (I'm not sure I can agree just because there are so many great ones to choose from, and admittedly, I haven't seen enough of them.) But it's a great performance filled with dramatic range, and he really sells it. I watched the movie about two weeks ago to begin working on the review, and I've been thinking about it since then - for a performance to stay in my memory like that is obviously a sign that there's something really good about it.

    If you've got time, definitely check out the two radio play versions included on the disc - Price reprises his role both times and it's interesting to be able to compare him in the actual movie against his own recreations of the performance.
