The Rocky Horror Picture Show – whose Lips are these?
Here’s a little insider information about what have turned out to be some pretty famous lips.
These lips belong to a model named Lorillie Goldberg. You ask how I know this? Well, as it turned out I was the art director who designed the poster and had to find a model with perfect lips that would look good as a still photographic. The original concept came about from watching a screening the film at 20th Century-Fox before its’ release. One of the first things seen in the film are a pair of lips that fill the screen and sing to you.
When I saw that I immediately imagined a poster with the lips and the concept was approved as quickly by the studio. The copy line “A different set of jaws” came about because this film was release shortly after Steven Spielberg’s first major directorial debut of “Jaws”.
