Footnotes

  • Beetlejuice is a 1988 American comedy-fantasy film directed by Tim Burton, produced by The Geffen Film Company. The plot revolves around a recently deceased young couple (Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis) who become ghosts haunting their former home, and an obnoxious, devious ghost named Betelgeuse (pronounced "Beetlejuice", portrayed by Michael Keaton) from the Netherworld who tries to scare away the new inhabitants. The film won the Academy Award for 'Best Make-up' and three Saturn Awards for 'Best Horror Film', 'Best Make-up' and 'Best Supporting Actress' for Sylvia Sidney.

    Provenance:
    Won by the vendor in a competition in 1989 when the film "Beetlejuice" was released on video. On this occasion, the German TV station SAT 1 raffled the mask. The programme in which the mask was raffled was called "Video News".
