Genius born from madness.
Three years before he made his feature-length directorial debut with Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure, Tim Burton launched his career with a salute to legendary master of the creepy Vincent Price.
Probably to his great surprise, Burton actually snagged Price to do the narration for his lightly-twisted tale of a young boy who imagines himself living a dark and tormented, though brilliant, life.
That launched a real-world friendship between the two, and you can see the seeds of many a future Burton film bloom here first, from Frankenweenie to Edward Scissorhands.
Two legends, six minutes, 100% joy.
