Vincentennial Post #76 - The House of the Seven Gables

In 1940, Price costarred with George Sanders and Margaret Lindsay in a loose adaptation of Nathaniel Hawthorne's THE HOUSE OF THE SEVEN GABLES, and (part of Hollywood's attempt to make Price into a typical romantic leading man), a role which featured Vinnie singing this tender love song!  While Price's singing voice was pleasant, it wasn't great.  Hollywood spent several years trying to figure out just what kind of roles really suited Vinnie!
