old-age: Shining Through

Shining Through

In Shining Through Melanie Griffith played Linda Voss, a WWII American spy in Germany. One of the IMDb comments summary summed up the result accurately, if cruelly: ‘For this part, the producers bravely (if stupidly) cast Melanie Griffith’.

The story is told in flashback from a present-day TV interview – hence the ageing makeup.

The makeup

John Caglione Jr and Doug Drexler were responsible for the character ageing makeup; Naomi Donne was the chief makeup artist; Valli O’Reilly was the personal makeup artist for Melanie Griffith.
