This is one I just came across and couldn’t believe how much he had changed. I figured it’d be interesting if anyone could figure out who this guy is. I’m sure I would have never guessed.

Looks like Vincent Price to me.

Yes it is. I was surprised there was a time when he looked normal.

Take care,

BTW Price was also noted as one hell of an art collector and critic and not at all like he was portrayed on the silver screen. He had a very engaging personality.

I thought it might have been Leslie Nielsen until I enlarged it.  Definitely Vincent Price but I don’t recall ever seeing him in a movie that young.

While Price was a good actor, and very bright, as I recall he was also strongly prejudiced and right wing almost to the point of finding WWII Germany’s views reasonable.

If you can believe his daughter’s biographical account of him, he later refuted his earlier beliefs. He was raised in a conservative family that was anti-Catholic and anti-Jewish and bought into Hitler’s diatribes, even attending the famous (infamous) Nuremburg rally of 1934. But after meeting with some German emigres whom he didn’t believe at first he was finally convinced it was crap. His daughter mentioned that he harbored no prejudice against African-Americans though and admired Paul Robeson.

Quoting TVA:

And Donald Trump isn’t prejudiced because he chose Arsenio Hall.

Donald Trump is prejudiced against African-Americans? Really? Why Arsenio Hall and not the President? Has he checked Arsenio’s birth certificate? BTW I was quoting his daughter; believe her or not. If you have any evidence to the contrary trot it out!

I have no evidence in either direction, however, I was pointing out that the statement that one is not prejudiced since (or and) one has a positive opinion of one specific member of the group is hardly a proof of the claim.

Occam, I threw the Robeson quote in as an illustration. She didn’t mean it to be used as a support to her claim. She goes on to mention his stay in England and his exposure to the war. Robeson sang there and she mentions Price went to see him. As a staunch Republican his family taught him that the party (radical abolitionist wing) freed the slaves and he harbored no racial prejudice towards them. His family were, once again anti Jewish And anti Catholic. Weird thought pattern but that’s how his daughter spun it.

  Since it was the following part of the same sentence in your post, it seemed reasonable to assume it was data to support the first part of that sentence.
