Vincent Price's fondness for this cuisine might surprise you

Author’s note: The following verse was inspired by “Vincent Price, Hot Dog Lover” posted by fellow ChicagoNow blogger, Mark Andel.

In a scene Vincent Price rides a coach in the fog.

In the next his eyes glow near a smoldering log.

At the end of the shot

On the old movie lot,

Perhaps he drank wine with his fav’rite hot dog.

  • Does anyone know what wine he recommended with hot dog? What vintage?

  • In reply to jnorto:

    If a Nathan's Famous, Manischevitz, last week.

  • That's fun, thanks! Can you imagine hearing that voice ordering a hot dog? "What do you want on it, sir? Yes, sir!"

  • In reply to Margaret H. Laing:

    Especially "no ketchup on that!"
