Shock

YouTube recommended I watch this 1946 B-grade film noir flick, and as it had Vincent Price I thought I would give it a go.

Vincent played a psychiatrist who is treating a patient in shock, and she was in shock because she witnessed Vincent murder his wife, and thus he was in a bit of a dilemma.

Very B-gradey stuff overall, but Vincent’s soothing tones, and the 70 minute running time made it a reasonably worthwhile watch. Unfortunately though it was of pretty bad quality, a copy of a low resolution copy most likely, but the sound was OK.

This was Vincent’s 16th film out of over 100 films he acted in. He also did a bit of TV including The Man from U.N.C.L.E., Get Smart, The Brady Bunch, The Bionic Woman, and The Love Boat. Quite a chap was Vincent.

Vincent seemed to be a good chap in real life too. He was publicy against racial and religious prejudice, supported his lesbian daughter, and was one of the first celebrities to appear in public service announcements about AIDS.

I am so impressed by Vincent that I have made a new page entitled “MBMS Page of Fame” and added him to it was the first on the list, followed by Barbara Stanwyck, another very worthy actor.

Date watched; December 8th
Score: 6.5/10
Film count 2016: 192
