Vincent Price's 1968 musical Darling of the Day is reborn

Darling of the Day tells the story of a celebrated artist yearning for anonymity. He fakes his own death and assumes his valet's identity but carries on painting - which means that his art mysteriously keeps reappearing.

The show is based on Arnold Bennett's The Great Adventure, and was adapted by Jule Styne (Gypsy, Funny Girl), E.Y. Harburg (Finian’s Window, Wizard of Oz) and Nunnally Johnson (The Grapes of Wrath, Roxie Hart).

The 1968 show, which originally starred Vincent Price and Patricia Routledge, is being resurrected as part of the Sadler's Well's Lost Musicals season in London, from 22 August to 19 September.

So, if you're in London... this is a real trip down memory lane.

For tickets and information, go to the Sadler's Wells website.

Vincent Price in 1947's The Web | Watch it now!

Vincent Price played the elegant but sinister industrialist Andrew Colby in the 1947 film noir The Web.

Its been a long time since I watched this and its still a solid piece of film-making, with great performances from Ella Raines (whatever happened to her?), Edmond O'Brien and William Bendix.

Watch it now!
