As a longtime old movie fan, I've been aware of the Westmores for YEARS. LOVED their work, and still DO!
It really makes me SMH when Mr. Westmore comes into the lab and gives clear advice to a contestant, only to have that contestant ignore his advice (for WHATEVER reason!), and more often than not get sent HOME for it later on. Makes me wonder exactly WHY these guys and gals think he's their mentor in the FIRST place.
Just ONE recent case in point from THIS season?
I DO SMH, too, and wonder if and WHY most/some/none of these people apparently never even bothered to try to Google and find out info on how their chosen profession came into existence in Hollywood, in the FIRST place. Of COURSE, things have really drastically changed in the field since George Westmore got the ball rolling way back in 1917. But, I HAVE to wonder WHY some of these people actually seem to think, feel and believe that they know more/better than a master of their craft who's been doing what he's doing for, say, the last 50-some-odd years, or so?
That REALLY makes me SMH, about some of these folks!
Not real bright, a lot of 'em!
And, to me, when an artist gets booted for ignoring Mr. Westmore's advice, that just proves
what McKenzie said:
"Ego will seal your doom."
