JACK PIERCE – THE MAN BEHIND THE MONSTERS chronicles the career exploits of Universal’s classic monster creator, Jack Pierce, who was with the studio during their horror heyday of 1928-1947. After freelancing in Hollywood’s earliest days as an actor, stuntman and assistant director, Pierce flourished in makeup in the 1910s and 1920s, first making himself into any variety of movie extras called for on fledgling studio lots. Then, from 1930-1947, Pierce created some of cinema history’s most distinguishable icons of fright, including Frankenstein’s Monster, The Mummy, The Bride of Frankenstein, Ygor, The Wolf Man, and The Phantom of the Opera among his many classic creations. Contained in this unique publication are detailed text and photos from every significant film of Pierce’s career, spanning the mid-1910s to the mid-1960s.
