He'll probably always be remembered for his spectacular work on The Exorcist but he was equally good on movies where you did not realize he'd made a big difference like his work making Brando into Don Corleone for The Godfather, aging F. Murray Abraham in Amadeus and the gory shootout at the end of Taxi Driver.
Also his work on genre cult film Altered States.
Smith passed away today after a long illness, he was 92.
 

I can't complain but sometimes I still do. Life's been good to me so far.

Dick Smith was one of the gods of the makeup craft. He will be greatly missed.

Sad news indeed.  One of the giants. Adios, hombre.
 

I bring you peace. It may be the peace of plenty and content or the peace of unburied death.

Shook his hand once. One of a kind.
 

Dinner break? What's a dinner break?

May I shake the hand that shook Dick Smith's hand next time we meet? (mine shook Ray Bradbury's shortly before his passing if that's a fair enough 'trade')
