HONOUR FOR MAKEUP LEGEND
Legendary makeup master Jack Pierce, who created the classic visages of Frankenstein?s Monster, the Wolf Man and many more for Universal, will receive an Honorary Makeup Academy Award next February at a Beverly Hills ceremony. Plans are for Sara Karloff, Bela Lugosi Jr. and Ron Chaney to accept the award for the late artist. In addition, Pierce?s most famous work will be the subject of one of a series of commemorative stamps being issued by the U.S. Postal Service next February to honor cinematic artistry. Ten different crafts will be represented, with Karloff having his Monster visage applied on the ?Makeup? stamp.
