He deserves a star...

Back in my post about the Wolfman remake currently in production I mentioned classic horror makeup genius Jack Pierce.

If you've ever seen any of the old Universal Studios horror films from the 30's and 40's you've seen Jack Pierce's work:

- Karloff as Frankenstein's Monster

- Lugosi as Dracula

- Chaney as the Wolfman

- Rains as the Invisible Man

Pierce designed all these makeups and thus created images that remain iconic until this day. His visuals continue to permeate our culture through myraid media forms. He left his mark on us all.

There is an online petition to get Jack Pierce a star on Hollywood Blvd. I think he deserves the recognition.

Here's the link to sign:
