1981 - The first ever oscar is given to Rick Baker for his amazing work on An American werewolf in London. Rick’s work set a high bar for makeup effects in the 1980’s and onward.
I understand. You found paradise in America. You had a good trade, you made a good living. The police protected you and there were courts of law. So you didn’t need a friend like me. Now you come and say “Don Corleone, give me justice.” But you don’t ask with respect. You don’t offer friendship. You don’t even think to call me “Godfather.” You come into my house on the day my daughter is to be married and you ask me to do murder - for money.
"I originally met Tommy in San Fransisco in an acting class, of all places and I watched him perform a Shakespearean sonnet. And I think everyone in the class was horrified." - Greg Sestero
The best part about this clip is when you read the context of it in The Disaster Artist. (BTW you should totally read it, it’s absolutely fantastic.)
See, Tommy Wiseau wanted a SAG card and found out he needed to be in something first, like a commercial or what have you. So he made this commercial for his business and cast himself in it, therefore buying himself a SAG card.
ALSO he saw Greg Sestero’s work in Retro Puppet Master and was so inspired by his performance that he was imitating it in this commercial.
So Tommy Wiseau made a Shakespearean Puppet Master ripoff commercial for his shady clothing business all in an attempt to get a SAG card before he just made his own movie anyway.
Wait. Greg was in Retro Puppet Master???? I had no idea and Puppet Master is my favorite series!
Yep! He was young Toulon.
so fucking sad
Just shows me that people love to bitch, but they don’t like to really do anything about what they’re bitching about.
Its really sad.
WHERE IS THE LIE
