“MAKE-UP” IN THE MOVIES

This was a sudden call on the property man, and for the life of him he couldn’t produce a yoke of oxen for the emergency. Very simple though! All he did was to attach two pairs of horns to as many heifers. These added dignities actually seemed to subdue their skittishness.
Half Yankee and Half Indian
This is Mr. Bruce Smith in the process of backsliding a century.” * From the median line of his chin, nose and forehead he is a noble red man—a chieftain of “(he kind that worried the settlers of Plymouth and old Hadley. On his right side, however, he is still plain Bruce Smith. This photograph is a remarkable demonstration of the power of the make-up box.
Would You Treat Your Wife This Way?
Of course Ralph Ince, the motion picture director shown in the photograph at the right, did not have the “knockdown, drag-out” fight with Lucille Lee Stewart—his wife—that her appearance would seem to indicate. Below is shown what really happened to Miss Stewart. The official make-up men took her when she was looking her prettiest, robbed her of a few necessary hairpins, and then daubed her artistically from head to foot with a paint brush so her attire would seem sufficiently disreputable. When she appeared in the cinema every fan believed that she really had been through the mill.
