Movie makeup master Dick Smith dies at 92

Dick Smith, the Hollywood makeup legend who turned Linda Blair into a demon in The Exorcist and Marlon Brando into an aging mafia don in The Godfather, has died at the age of 92.

Smith's death, which came after a long illness, was announced by Smith's friend and fellow makeup artist Rick Baker on Thursday morning.

"The master is no longer with us, but his work will live on,'' said Baker, a seven-time Oscar winner. "There will never be another like Dick. He and his work changed the industry.''
