              Makeup Man: From Rocky to Star Trek The Amazing Creations of Hollywood's Michael Westmore
               

              Makeup Man: From Rocky to Star Trek The Amazing Creations of Hollywood's Michael Westmore (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Headline: A peak behind the Hollywood mask by one of its foremost makeup artists In Hollywood's heyday, almost every major studio had a Westmore heading up the makeup department. Since 1917, there has never been a time when Westmores weren't shaping the visages of stardom. For th...eir century-long dedication to the art of makeup, the Westmores were honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2008. In this lively memoir, Michael Westmore not only regales us with tales of Hollywood's golden age, but also from his own career where he notably transformed Sylvester Stallone into Rocky Balboa and Robert DiNiro into Jake LaMotta, among many other makeup miracles. Westmore's talent as a makeup artist first became apparent when he created impenetrable disguises for Kirk Douglas, Tony Curtis, Burt Lancaster, Robert Mitchum, and Frank Sinatra for the 1963 film The List of Adrian Messenger. He later went on to become the preferred makeup man for Bobby Darin and Elizabeth Taylor, and worked on such movies and TV shows as The Munsters, Rosemary's Baby, Eleanor and Franklin, New York, New York, 2010: A Space Odyssey, and Mask, for which he won an academy award. The next phase of his career was to create hundreds of alien characters for over 600 episodes of Star Trek in all its iterations, from The Next Generation to Enterprise. Replete with anecdotes about Hollywood and its stars, from Bette Davis's preference for being made-up in the nude to Shelley Winters's habit of nipping from a little bottle while on the set, Makeup Man will satisfy any Hollywood's fan's appetite for gossip or a behind-the-scenes look at how tinsel town's most iconic film characters were created. Academy Award-winning Michael Westmore has been making up the stars for over fifty years. He frequently appears on the SyFy channel show Face Off with his daughter McKenzie Westmore.

              America's Alligator: A Popular History of Our Most Celebrated Reptile (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              People have long been fascinated by the American alligator. Ever since humans arrived on the continent more than 15,000 years ago, the American alligator has been both feared and revered, celebrated and scorned, and often hunted for food and hide. Once tourism began to take hold ...in the South as a real industry, especially in Florida, the alligator took on iconic and even mythical status. One of the most picturesque features of Florida has always been that uncouth and fierce-looking reptile called the alligator, wrote Nevin O. Winter in 1918. Everybody who comes down here to the peninsula has an ambition to see one in the wild. Seminole Indians wrestled alligators for show. Alligator souvenirs and mascots often took what people feared-a sharp-toothed predator-and made it into something cute and cuddly. Alligator-themed songs were recorded and released, including See You Later Alligator by Bill Haley and His Comets. Hollywood into created alligator-themed movies such as Alligator People. Alligators were also reportedly kept in the White House under two presidencies. And perhaps the most unusual alligator story was one that helped to nab Ma Barker and her son Fred when they were hiding out along Florida's Lake Weir. America's Alligator examines the colorful and sometimes conflicted relationship our species has had with Alligator mississippiensis. Doug Alderson explores the country's rich alligator mythology and how it inspired various forms of art, stories, photography, tourism and even humor.
