Released December 14, 1990 (US)
The Inventor, portrayed by the incomparable Vincent Price, was written specifically with him in mind. Although he had a very short part in the finished film, it was intended for his character to have a much larger role. Unfortunately, Price was ill during filming, suffering from emphysema and Parkinson’s disease, and his screen time was minimized to reduce undue stress. Edward Scissorhands was his last significant role; Price passed away October 25, 1993 at the age of 82.
