I'm surprised no one has mentioned his turn as the Invisable Man-reprisesing Claude Rains role in the 1933 classic-in the INVISABLE MAN RETURNS (1940) his first starring horror role!
Trivia time!-Vinnie also did the voice of the Invisable Man at the end of ABBOTT AND COSTELLO MEET FRANKENSTEIN (1948)-his only screen (non)appearance with Bela Lugosi!

Not his first association with music-check him out with Alice Cooper-the Black Widow!

I'd also suggest trying to track down his guest apperance on the Muppet Show.  he was actually pretty cool there too.

As a kid, I first saw him in Master of the World (1961).  It thrilled me no end, to the point where I was drawing contraptions like he used in the movie.  I barely remember it now, although as a seven or eight year old I thought it was fabulous.

Other than just saying 'hey why pick only three' I'll add another vote to the first Dr Phibes.  Any movie that has someone being killed by a unicorn statue is a-ok in my book.

You've pretty much covered the classics.

 I would add:

MADHOUSE

and

THE LAST MAN OF EARTH.

If "The Last Man on Earth" seems a lot like "Night of the Living Dead there is a good reason for that. They are both loosely based on the book "I am Legend," which spawned the Will Smith movie of the same name and the Charlton Heston classic "Omega Man." This movie was truly ahead of it's time by a few years.
"Madhouse" is the same kind of role Vincent Price has done many times before. But it is still one of his best performances.

Kudos to The Last Man On Earth!  Not sure it would be one of my faves in the top 3, but if I had to do a 3-movie set, it would be:

House On Haunted Hill
The Pit And The Pendulum
The Tingler

Not that I haven't seen his other movies, I just like the fun factor of HOHH and Tingler, and chose "Pit" for a serious one because he was truly wacked in that one. Kudos to a young and pretty cute Barbara Steele too!  Cheers

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
