the dead: High Spirits

High Spirits

Peter Plunkett (Peter O’Toole) pretends his Irish castle is haunted to attract visitors and then the real ghosts show up. One of the American guests falls for the ghost of Mary Plunkett (Daryl Hannah): she is restored to life but at her real age – and well past her sell-by date. But it all turns out well in the end.

Surprisingly enough it was quite funny.

The makeup

Christopher Tucker was responsible for the Daryl Hannah’s special makeup & transformation; Peter Robb-King was chief makeup supervisor; Jane Royle was chief makeup artist; Ilona Herman was makeup artist (Daryl Hannah).
