jabba, yoda, ape

RIP STUART FREEBORN

Freeborn was the makeup artist responsible for creating Yoda, Jabba the Hut (a giant puppet with three operators inside), the creatures in the Star Wars cantina, Chewbacca, and the apes in both 2001 (who apparently had mechanized mouths and tongues) and Planet of the Apes. What a resume.
