I had known Vincent Price for years and years but I had never worked with him, so that’s why I did it. It was shot at Grim’s Dyke, which was the house that belonged to W.S. Gilbert of Gilbert and Sullivan fame. We were there in the dead of winter, and it was cold because they didn’t have any heating! Cry of the Banshee was Vincent’s 100th movie, and after shooting they gave a big party for him in the house. And they had a girl come out of a cake—a nude girl. This was another first for me, I had never seen that before. The poor thing was freezing to death, naked as a jaybird, and Vincent was very embarrassed because that isn’t his cup of tea. A nude coming out of a cake, that isn’t Vincent Price, not at all.
