A Daughter's objective biography of a bravura actor
on 2 April 2001
Victoria Price gives a remarkably objective account of her father's life and career as actor and art-collector. There is too much repetition and name-dropping, but Vincent's insecurity, despite being born with a silver spoon in his mouth, his panache and wit as a performer and his apparent success as a 'Renaissance man', is confronted honestly and with sympathy. Ms Price is particularly generous to her step-mother, the touchy, miserly grande dame Coral Browne, who gave her and Vincent a hard time. But I'd have liked more critical appraisal of her father's performances.
