Mr. Smith is perhaps best known to horror fans as the man who created the make-up for the Regan/Demon in William Friedkin's THE EXORCIST (with a little help from then-acolyte Rick Baker). On the other hand, Monster Kids from the era of the 60's monster craze will forever be indebted to him for giving us the FAMOUS MONSTERS DO-IT-YOURSELF MONSTER MAKE-UP HANDBOOK (Warren Publishing, 1965).
Thanks for helping us create our dreams . . . and nightmares, Dick!
