Back in 1982, Tim Burton worked as an apprentice animator at Disney. Burton's style didn't quite fit with the Disney aesthetic. And so he independently created a short, stop motion animated film simply titled "Vincent." The style of the storytelling has been called "Dr. Seuss meets Edgar Allan Poe," and it tells the story of a young boy who wants to be Vincent Price, the Yale-educated actor who became a fixture in American horror films starting in the late 1930s. The film runs six minutes and features Price himself providing the narration. (Read a transcript of the narrated text here.) Notably, Price later appeared in Burton's blockbuster Edward Scissorhands. Animation World Network takes a much closer look at this early Burton work, and we have now added Vincent to our collection, 1,150 Free Movies Online: Great Classics, Indies, Noir, Westerns, etc..
