I have a very vivid memory of watching Jim Carrey's The Mask at the Vista Theaters in Los Feliz in 1994. At the time, Carrey was reaching the peak of his fame, having been on In Living Color and starred in Ace Ventura: Pet Detective. My two younger brothers and I were very excited for the movie and liked it so much that we bought The Mask as soon as it was released on VHS. The movie is so over the top and comical that it's kind of timeless in its tastelessness.
JimCarreyOnline.com uncovered some early promotional art that tips from zany into creepy. It's pretty clear he's not wearing makeup so the green tinted face morphs just look bizarre and not very cartoonish.

They call me Cuban Pete. I'm the king of the rhumba beat. When I play the maracas I go chick-chicky-boom, chick-chicky boom. Sorry, every time I get to go back to one of my favorite films from my childhood, The Mask, I have to sing those sweet "Cuban Pete" lyrics. If you're a fan of the film as well, you are going to love these rough, early designs for Jim Carrey's The Mask that were featured in an old presskit New Line Cinemas issued to promote their film before it was released. Some of these early designs come across as quite sinister and that would've played as well as the finished look, which was very kid-friendly. The film itself is basically a live-action cartoon. Funny enough, the film was based on the comic book of the same name from Dark Horse Comics and it is actually quite dark compared »
