Proving that Jack Pierce's influence remains as viable as ever, this year's Rondo Awards has several ballot entries for Jack Pierce-related items:
- Best Article - "Credit Where Credit is Due: Jack Pierce, Frankendesigner", by Dr. Gangrene (a compelling argument that Jack Pierce was the main talent behind the design of the Frankenstein Monster instead that of director James Whale).
- Best Article - "Wolf Men: Jack Pierce's Incarnations of The Wolf Man", by Scott Essman.
- Best Fan Event - The dedication of the Jack Pierce Memorial Gallery at the Cinema Makeup School (see an upcoming post for our visit there last month).
The awards ballot for 2013 is available HERE for anyone to vote. Whether or not you are a fan of Pierce (and we presume you are since your here in the first place), Doug and I highly recommend that you participate. The deadline is coming up at midnight, May 5, 2014.
