Another little morsel for you before our upcoming monstrous BookTalk event, a film-screening and discussion of James Whale’s Frankenstein (1931), on the 30th June. Below is a trailer for a documentary that focuses on the man behind the incredible monster make-up, Jack Pierce.
Pierce worked for many years at Universal Pictures, and designed the make-up for many of their famous monsters, including Dracula (1931), The Mummy (1932), and The Wolf Man (1941).
