Highest Rated: 89% The Wanderers (1979)

Lowest Rated: 23% Freedomland (2006)

Birthday: Oct 12, 1949

Birthplace: Bronx, New York, USA

Sometimes dubbed "the voice of the Bronx," Price is primarily known for streetwise sagas like his 1976 novel "Blood Brothers" (filmed in 1978), a coming-of-age story set in the world of construction workers, and "The Wanderers" (published in 1974, filmed in 1979), a gritty look at the world of Bronx housing-project gangs. After both of these popular novels had been adapted for film, Price embarked on a successful career as an original screenwriter, notably with "The Color of Money" (1986), which earned him an Oscar nod, and the thoughtful crime drama-cum-character study "Sea of Love" (1989), which revitalized Al Pacino's film career.
