Oh, no! Wow. Dick Smith, man. The Godfather of Make-Up is right, that guy's possibly the greatest make-up artist to have ever lived. His contributions to the field have been immeasurable and invaluable, and his generosity and willingness to share tips and secrets with up-and-comers garnered him a huge amount of esteem among other make-up professionals.
Just look at some of the stuff he's worked on:
Little Big Man
House on Haunted Hill '99
Death Becomes Her
Monster (TV series)
Requiem for a Heavyweight
The Godfather and The Godfather Part II
The Sentinel (a personal favorite)
And that's just a few off the top of my head. The man was a legend in every sense of the word. We lost a good one today, folks. In fact this news deserves its own thread, if you ask me. I'll go take care of that now.
Rest in peace, Mr. Smith.
