Hugo at the Monster Rally

Hugo: Man of a Thousand Faces was manufactured by Kenner in 1975 and was created by writer/director/make-up artist Alan Ormsby. Ormsby is best known for his work on the movies Children Shouldn't Play with Dead Things (1973), My Bodyguard (1980), Cat People (1982) and Porky's II: The Next Day (1983).

He was also the author one of my favorite childhood memories, the make-up effects book "Movie Monsters" in 1976. You can see my post about the book here.

I loved my Hugo when I was a kid. Unfortunately he mysteriously disappeared over the years. But, have no fear, Hugo has returned! Click here to see how I was reacquainted with him.
