Actor Invents Rubber Movie Masks
LIVE rubber masks which J may revolutionize the art of make-up in motion picture horror roles have been developed by Cliff Arquette, radio and screen actor, who is known as the “man of a thousand hobbies.” The inventor says the masks will enable actors to control facial expressions, thus making the artificial faces seem alive. The porous quality of the rubber will permit air to reach the pores of the actor’s
face, eliminating skin diseases.
