    He got his start doing commercials with the Pillsbury Dough Boy and Green Giant and the sci-fi/porno spoof 'Flesh Gordon' (1974).
    He looks like Ronald Lacey and stood in for the absent actor in 'Raiders of the Lost Ark,' looking over a Life magazine as Indiana Jones boards a passenger plane.
    He favors applying 3-D to old movies like 'Casablanca.' (As if colorizing movies wasn't intrusive enough.)
    Growing up, he made 8-mm films with his friend, future Oscar-winning make-up artist Rick Baker.
    He won six Academy Awards for visual effects (as of 2010), plus three special achievement Oscars.
    He became the first special effects artist honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame (1999).
