He died at the young age of 40, and the question "how did he die"-rabies, alcohol, heart disease-still remains a mystery.BASIL RATHBONE (1892-1967) appeared in over 80 films including Captain Blood, The Adventures of Robin Hood, The Last Hurrah, and The Comedy of Terrors, as well as 13 appearances in the tremendously popular Sherlock Holmes series.VINCENT PRICE (1911-1993) was an actor and writer who starred in many films, including the low-budget horror classics House of Wax, House of Usher, Pit and the Pendulum and The Masque of the Red Death. Known for his distinctive, low-pitched, creaky, atmospheric voice, he died the week before Halloween in 1993.
