Legendary Hollywood Makeup Artist Jack Pierce was born on this day in 1889. Thank you for creating the monsters we all love so much. Without you we wouldn’t know the classic monsters the way we do now. You’re an inspiration to all monster fans. Your work will be forever remembered.
This stage, used in The Phantom of the Opera (1925) and many more movies since, is part of the oldest standing film set in the world. Guess what, folks? Universal Studios reportedly plan on dismantling this fragile set and demolishing its famous soundstage, Stage 28 or the so-called Phantom Stage, built in 1924.
PLEASE HELP SAVE THE PHANTOM STAGE! Sign this petition and this one, too. If you like this GIF, horror movies, film history, or culture in general, don’t delay. Add your name to the petitions and show the studio that you care about this landmark of old Hollywood.
