There is a petition afoot to get Universal's makeup mastermind Jack P. Pierce his own star on the famous Hollywood Walk of Fame. I came across word of the petition on Ain't It Cool News, and considered it important enough to pass along to readers of The Vault of Horror. I'm not sure if any other makeup artists have their own star, but if anyone deserves one, it would have to be Jack Pierce, who worked for Universal for a quarter century, creating some of the most unforgettable characters in motion picture history along the way.
Pierce's incredible body of work includes such films as The Man Who Laughs (1928), Dracula (1931), Frankenstein (1931), White Zombie (1932), The Mummy (1932), The Invisible Man (1933), The Black Cat (1934), Bride of Frankenstein (1935), Werewolf of London (1935), Dracula's Daughter (1936), Son of Frankenstein (1939), The Wolf Man (1941), The Mummy's Tomb (1942), Phantom of the Opera (1943) and Beauty and the Beast (1962):
