"I sometimes feel that I'm impersonating the dark unconscious of the whole human race. I know this sounds sick, but I love it." -- Vincent Price (Bizarre Los Angeles)

“I sometimes feel that I’m impersonating the dark unconscious of the whole human race. I know this sounds sick, but I love it.”Vincent Price


Vincent Price & Barbara Steele in The Pit & the Pendulum (Bizarre Los Angeles)“I’ve come to the conclusion that you get along much better with the actors in these grim, heavy dramas than you do in comedies. I play the wife who murders her husband, and when it’s a nice husband like Vincent Price, it’s not a very pleasant thought to ‘do him in.’ Every one told me I would like Vincent, he is so thoughtful, warm and helpful. But I had no idea that I would like him so well, and find him so pleasant to work with.”Barbara Steele

Vincent Price's Chicken Sweet and Hot

Vincent Price’s Chicken Sweet and Hot

Servings: 4-6


1 fryer chicken, quartered
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 cup red currant jell
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 cup orange juice
1 teaspoon powdered ginger
3 dashes Tabasco sauce


1. Combine all of the above ingredients, except chicken, in a pan.

2. Heat gently, stirring until jelly is blended and sauce is smooth (it doesn’t really thicken a lot, just a little bit).

3. Cool.

4. Pour sauce over 1 quartered chicken and marinate for 2 or 3 hours.

5. Cover and cook in preheated moderate oven (I used 350 degrees F for the first 40 minutes, then raised it to 375 degrees F).

6. Uncover, increase oven temperature to hot (I raised it to 425 degrees F) and baste frequently until chicken is an even dark brown.

7. (Before I put the chicken in at the higher temperature, I used a large spoon to take out some of the marinade/basting sauce; it seemed to make a lot to me– I left just enough in the dish to use for basting, but not so little that it would burn at the high) Serve with rice.
