About the Costume

In the 1950s and 1960s, Vincent Price made several B horror films. Just as B science fiction films have a history of reuse for costumes and props, so does B horror.

House on Haunted Hill and The Bat, both from 1959, are arguably two of Price’s more well-known films – the above negligee with a distinct collar of entwined fabrics appears in both.

The gown was first seen in House on Haunted Hill, worn by Carol Ohmart as Annabelle Loren. The costume was worn again by the incomparable Agnes Moorehead as Cornelia van Gorder in The Bat.

The costume can be seen in several lobby cards from both films. One card from The Bat imagines it to be pink, though the actual color is unknown, as both movies were filmed in black and white.
