old-age makeups: Mother Wore Tights

Mother Wore Tights

In this chronicle of a vaudeville family, Myrtle McKinley (Betty Grable) goes to San Francisco to attend business school, but ends up in a chorus line. Soon the star notices her talent and hires her for a ‘two-act’ then marries her. Incidents of the marriage and the growing pains of their eldest daughter are followed, interspersed with nostalgic musical numbers

The makeup

I haven’t seen this movie for years so I don’t have any makeup credit information and only this single image of a test old-age makeup: if anyone can help with more information or images, please email the makeupgallery. Betty Grable was approximately thirty under that makeup.
