The completely convincing makeup for the real life character of Rocky Dennis was done by makeup artist Michael Westmore.

Rusty and I used to hang around together around '87, going to biker events and appearing on television together. The club in the film is really a composite of several clubs, as are some of the characters. The only person who actually wears those colors is Rusty herself, by special permission of the leading club in the country. The character of Gar is a composite of 3 of her ex-husbands and the character of Bulldozer is a fictional creation, though he reminds me of several friends. There is no love lost between Rusty and Cher, though Cher did nail the character pretty well. Last time I talked to her, she was working as a telephone psychic.

Sam Elliot, the tough chopper riding star of the movie, actually did not know how to ride a chopper. Eddie Paul of Customs By Eddie Paul, the builder of all the bikes used in Mask, personally gave Elliot riding lessons for this movie.

I heard from the casting agent of Mask that they saw tons of young Actors for the role of Rocky and nothing was clicking until Eric Stoltz came in and did his audition with a brown bag over his face with the eye and mouth hole cut out. They were blown away by his reading and realized they could not get a sense of the disfigured character from anyone else.

The camp that Rocky went to to "get away from it all" for a while was "Camp Bloomfield, Foundation for the Junior Blind" located near Malibu, California on 40 acres in the Santa Monica mountains, about two miles off of the ocean.
