witch makeups: Hansel & Gretel – the makeup

Hansel & Gretel

Fairie Tale Theatre was a wonderful series produced by Shelley Duvall, and attracting some big players as both actors and directors, the latter including Tim Burton (‘Aladdin and His Wonderful Lamp’) and Francis Ford Coppola (‘Rip Van Winkle’).

Casting Joan Collins, then in her Dynasty pomp, as the evil-stepmother and the witch in ‘Hansel And Gretel’ was inspired.

The makeup

The makeup was designed by Sheryl Ptak (as Sheryl Leigh Shulman) and Ron Wild (as Ron Figuly).
