Best Make Up: 1962

My Nominations: Lawrence Of Arabia. The Amphibian Man. The Wonderful World Of The Brothers Grimm. Dr No. To Kill A Mockingbird. Whatever Happened To Baby Jane?

Once again, there was no award for Make-Up this year, so it’s time to right that wrong by praising some of the great work done by the artists in 1962. Charles E Parker and A.G.Scott dealt with a huge cast on Lawrence Of Arabia and ensured as much authenticity as Hollywood would allow. Parker was known for make-up on some of the biggest movies ever made – Ben Hur, 2001, Star Wars etc, while Scott was a stylist on many big films from the 40s to the 70s. The Amphibian Man is a movie no-one remembers, and I have no idea who did the make-up, but it’s pretty cool. If any film deserved to be the first official winner for this project, it’s The Wonderful World Of The Brothers Grimm. William Tuttle does his stuff again, having previously done make-up for every film ever made. Sydney Guilaroff spiced up the hair and has a mere 416 credits to his name from the 30s to 1989. Dr No has some good work too, thanks to John O’Gorman and Eileen Warwick.  Bud Westmore, Frank Prehoda, Larry Germain, and Lavaughn Speer do the make-up on Mockingbird while Baby Jane had Jack Obringer and a host of others adding to the crumbling veneer.

My Winner: The Wonderful World Of The Brothers Grimm.
