Dick Smith, pioneering makeup and FX artist, died on July 30, 2014 at the age of 92. He invented many new and innovative makeup and effects techniques which still influence filmmaking today. He did makeup for such classic films as The Godfather, Midnight Cowboy, Taxi Driver, Amadeus, and, of particular interest to marathoids, The Exorcist. Using a combination of makeup and practical effects, he helped create such iconic moments as Linda Blair's spinning head, swelling stomach welts and projectile vomiting. He is survived by two sons.
