Subject: Her last husband that she loved

I am sure Coral Browne won't mind me doing this for her. Also I am doing this for her last husband that she loved deeply and he loved her. He was Vincent Price, the great actor. I have never met Ms. Browne, but did meet Mr.Price some 9 times, a very dear man. God bless them both, wonderful and talented dear souls of the Arts.

Biography for Coral Browne Birth name Coral Edith Brown -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Mini biography Australian actress who worked primarily in Britain and specialized in superior, upper-crust sorts. Browne began her stage career in Melbourne but moved to England at the age of 21 and quickly brightened the West End with her sharp delivery and stylish sense of comedy. Her film appearances were sporadic, though she made several pictures memorable with her presence, particularly The Ruling Class (1972) as the libidinous Lady Claire. While touring the Soviet Union in a Royal Shakespeare Company production of "Hamlet, " Browne encountered the expatriate British spy Guy Burgess, and this bizarre meeting became the basis of the television film An Englishman Abroad (1983) (TV), for which Browne won the BAFTA Best Actress award for playing herself. She met Vincent Price when they co-starred in Theatre of Blood (1973), and married him in 1974. He was at her side when she died at 77 following a long struggle with breast cancer. Vicent Price was best known here in the United States as a star of the "Creepy and vaguely sinister variety" even though you can tell he was a classically trained theatre actor.
