Biography

Bud Westmore was one of the more famous members of the legendary Westmore family dynasty which dominated, and in many ways expanded, the art of makeup in Hollywood cinema. Patriarch George Westmore began at Metro Pictures in 1917, developing techniques still in use today. His greater contribution, though, may have been in fathering six sons, all of whom went into makeup design. In the 1930s and 40s, the Westmore boys divvied up most of Hollywood among themselves. The eldest, Monte, was at Selznick International, Perc was ensconced at Warner Bros., Ernest worked for 20th Century-Fox and Eagle-Lion, Wally enjoyed a lengthy tenure at Paramount, and Frank, the youngest, free-lanced and later did much TV. Bud, the second youngest son, worked at Universal from the late 40s till his death in 1973.
