"Song of Bernadette" (1943) may have been the film that kicked things off for Vincent Price, although it did not exactly make him a household name at the time. Still, his performance was spellbinding here and this film should be considered one of his best.
Now, other Vincent Price films worth honoring would include:
"House on Haunted Hill" (1958) - undoubtedly one of his most recognizable films in the genre of horror. The effects are a bit thin, but the storyline and the suspense factor make it a classic.

"House of Wax" (1953): How can this not be included in the list? The film has a definite creep factor and the shock element reaches out to the audience on all levels. Price makes his debut in an all-out horror role here.
In 1964, Price starred in the wonderful "Masque of the Red Death" which may have been one of the best films and performances of his career.
