MACHINE MEASURES BEAUTY OF FACE (Feb, 1933)

I’ll forgo the Hellraiser jokes and just say ouch.

MACHINE MEASURES BEAUTY OF FACE
Even beauty may now be reduced to cold, hard figures, according to the inventors of a device that is said to record the contours of a face with thousandth-of-an-inch accuracy. Beauty shops might use the device, the inventors say, to learn how to change their customers’ features. In the inventors’ opinion, the following measurements are ideal: nose, same length as the height of forehead; eyes, separated by a space the width of one eye.

    After all, Pinhead only came to be that way after a freak accident while taking “beauty measurements”.

    I’m surprised nobody else ever commented on the pair of cloned assistants to the right of Dr. Frankenstein.
