For anyone else: On a TV game show in the 60's called "Everybody's Talking," Vincent Price gave Pat Carroll a short spanking for repeatedly cleaning his clock in the competition!
(That's what newspaper people used to call a "lead sentence,")
Possibly my favorite Vincent Price movie is "The Abominable Dr. Phibes," with its dark humor and classy and creative storytelling, Vince could ham it up, but he also put in some splendid performances, and was a compassionate, cultured, and absolutely hilarious man!
For example, after a very long taping of a string of "drop-ins" for a kids' show in Canada, he disappeared for a bit, then burst back in with cases of ice-cold beer for the entire crew, and sat around with them swapping stories!
He broke the tension on the "Batman" TV set by starting an enormous egg fight at the end of an "Egghead" scene!
And he apparently loved being on the talk shows, and popped up on a lot of the game shows, too, having a ball, but also really going after the win!
Probably most people will know Pat Carroll for her performance as Ursula the Sea Witch in the Disney "Little Mermaid," but of course, she's had a long and wonderful career/ You might catch her on Netflix or something as one of the Stepsisters in the Rogers and Hammerstein "Cinderella," the one from the '60's, with Lesley Ann Warren in the title role.
So, the game show was called "Everybody's Talking," and its premise was that three contestants watched short film clips of people on the street describing something or someone, and the contestants tried to beat the running clock and name the topic. The quicker you guessed it, the more points and dough you won.
