Happy Birthday Rick Baker

Make-up FX genius Rick Baker, 56 years old today. In a career going back to the early 1970's Baker has produced some of the most memorable Make-up FX of his generation. In 1971 he was paid just $1000 to create the suit for Octoman and in 1981 he was the very first recipient of the Oscar for Best Make-Up for An American Werewolf in London when the category was first introduced.
