Either those four names excite you and if they don't then get these movies and find out what great talents they were. Jack Nicholson is in the Raven. Peter and Vincent run a funeral parlor and get business by............?

These movies will not dissapoint Price fans. They are also a good introduction to the actor. Coupled with a great transfer to DVD you are in for a treat. Also see Boris Karloff in his prime.
