Makeup Man Jack Pierce with Ann Blyth



Before there was Bud Westmore, there was Jack Pierce at Universal.  He was responsible for the iconic monster makeup of the early 1930s, especially the look of Boris Karloff’s Frankenstein monster, which has become the template for how we see author Mary Shelley’s creation.

Reportedly not terribly well liked at the studio, and having a tendency to go over budget with his creations, Pierce was fired in 1946.  He’s here with Ann Blyth on a considerably easier assignment gilding the lily.
