Published

on

Dick Smith was born on June 26, 1922 in Larchmont, New York, USA as Richard Emerson Smith. He is known for his work on The Godfather (1972), The Godfather: Part II (1974) and Taxi Driver (1976).

Smith was an Academy Award-winning make-up artist who is best known for The Exorcist, but has contributed to films like The GodfatherLittle Big ManTaxi DriverAmadeus and Ghost Story. For those who aspired to be a make-up artist at one time or another (and either followed through with it or didn’t – I fell into that latter category), Smith’s story is well-known.
