Vincent Leonard Price Jr. was born on this day, May 27th, 1911. I shouldn't have to tell you all who Vincent Price is, or how much he accomplished in his lifetime, but the man is and always will be the model of a consummate actor. His accomplishments, not only on film, but also on TV, stage, recordings and other media, will always attest to his wonderful talent. in his career he managed to star in over 103 films, as well as many TV appearances. Vincent Price is, and will always remain one of my personal heroes. To read more about Vincent's amazing life, please check out his filmography and read his Wikipedia page. HAPPY BIRTHDAY VINCENT! We miss you!

We're a day late, his birthday was May 5th, but nonetheless, I want to wish Jack a happy birthday! Jack is most famous for his design and creation of the make-up for Universal Studio's Frankenstein, in 1931, starring Boris Karloff. But Jack created many of the famous Universal monster make-up back then, for such films as The Man Who Laughs, The Mummy, starring Boris Karloff, Dracula, starring Bela Lugosi, The Bride of Frankenstein, and The Wolfman, starring Lon Chaney Jr., as well as many others. Jack Pierce left a legacy behind for many fans of classic monster movies, and inspired a slew of fans to become make-up men themselves, such as Rick Baker and Tom Savini.
Happy Birthday Jack!
