Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
I ran a pic of Tim Curry in the Pennywise make-up from the IT mini-series early on in the column’s run and received another shot from the making of the series from make-up man Bart Mixon in response. This one has Mr. Mixon touching up Pennywise the Dancing Clown’s make-up.
I’m kind of glad the proposed re-do of IT hasn’t come to fruition. I mean, the mini-series is about a tenth as scary and awesome as Stephen King’s book, but the movie they were talking about doing was supposed to be from Beverly Marsh’s perspective and that doesn’t sound like a good idea at all to me.
And really, you can’t get a better Pennywise in design and performance. Tim Curry was inspired casting and knocked it out of the park, creating an iconic monster, which is doubly impressive when you consider how mediocre the rest of the series is.
Thanks again to Bart Mixon for sending this one along. Hope you guys enjoy!

Tomorrow’s behind the scenes pic wouldn’t hurt a fly.
