From Robert De Niro’s Taxi Driver mohawk to The Godfather’s horse head, from Dustin Hoffman’s centenarian Little Big Man transformation to Linda Blair’s demonic Exorcist descent, Dick Smith redefined the art of movie make-up.

Smith passed away last week at the age of 92. Below is a gallery of the legendary maestro at work.
