Tim Burton Influences

Vincent Price (27 May 1911- 25 October 1993)
Profession:Actor
Vincent Price was Tim Burton’s favourite Actor. With Burton’s aesthetic taste and directorial style, this is quite understandable as Price would have been involved in such films as  House of Wax (1953) (A 1 hour 28 minute film revolving around a vengeful owner of a wax museum whom had been badly burned in a fire), and The Fall of the House of the Usher (1960) (A 1 hour 19 minute long film based on a family curse). Both of which, are quite overly theatrical, dark, contain ominous themes/setting, and appear to be based around a Victorian time period.
