Autograph letter signed "Coral and Vincent Price" in blue ink. 1 page postcard, 5¾x3½. Jan 12, 1980. Addressed to Miss Phyllis Diller, Los Angeles, California. In full: "Dear Phyllis D. Just got back from a 'cruise'!! We left Dec 13th & returned yesterday. Thank you SO much for asking us on Jan 4th & please dont think I was rude in not answering. We would have LOVED to have been with you - Happy 81 - Coral & Vincent Price Vinnie sends love & so do Thelma & Gwen in Sydney!!!" This postcard has a return label affixed from "Mrs Vincent Price"; she married her second husband Price in 1974 and stayed with him until her death. Browne (1913-1991) born Coral Edith Brown in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia was an Australian-born actress and comedienne who became a British stage star. She also played in numerous starring film roles over a 50-year period, beginning in 1935. Most know her best, though, from the storms of gossip that she whipped up. She was a friend and confident to many important theatre people, reportedly had a number of lovers from both sexes and died a multimillionaire, much to the surprise of her second husband, Vincent Price. Some of her best roles came late in her career. In An Englishman Abroad (1984), she plays herself in a true account of her chance meeting in Moscow with infamous Soviet spy Guy Burgess. In Dreamchild (1985), she played an elderly Alice Hargreave, who had been the model for Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland heroine, in a film which hints darkly at the author's relationship with the young girl. She met Price when he "murdered" her in Theatre of Blood (1973) - always a good way to start a relationship - and married him a year later. Vincent Leonard Price, Jr. (1911-1193) was an American actor, well known for his distinctive voice and also for his serio-comic performances in horror films made in the latter part of his career. Lightly creased at corners. Random ink stains and transference from other letters. Otherwise in fine condition.
