mistresses of disguise: Black Widow

Black Widow

Catharine (Theresa Russell) had bad luck with her husbands – mainly as a result of poisoning their champagne.

The different looks were not that different apart from the wigs and I remember her expressing disappointment in interviews at the time that they had cut back on the planned transformations. After setting the stage with a couple of looks to quickly despatch the first rich husbands Catharine spent most of the movie looking remarkably like Theresa Russell.

The makeup

Dorothy J Pearl designed and created the makeup.
