Tim Curry still feels ‘sick’ watching the original Rocky horror picture show

“The Rocky Horror Picture Show” is based on the stage musical written by Richard O’Brien, who also co-wrote the screenplay. Tim Curry first played Dr. Frank-N-Furter during 1973 with 74 productions in London and Los Angeles before reprising the role in the feature film adaptation. For the film, the producers hired Pierre Laroche, a makeup artist who worked for David Bowie and Mick Jagger and helped pioneer the androgynous glamor rock style. Tim Curry told Interview Magazine: “He adapted the makeup that was already in my case and created a haute couture version of it. Even today, he’s not sold on the glamorous version of Dr. Frank-N-Furter.

The 70s were ahead of my time, so I don’t see early productions of the play, but I did find some black and white photos online. It is difficult for me to discern any real difference between the two descriptions of Dr. Frank-N-Furter. Maybe, I need to up my aesthetic game. However, Curry managed to find a silver lining. Actor Bruce Campbell worked with him on the 1995 sci-fi action-adventure film “Congo”. In a tweet in 2022, he shares what Curry told him about what he liked about “The Rocky Horror Picture Show.” He say:

“[Curry] said one of the most interesting is [The Rocky Horror Picture Show] helped some small indie theaters underperform, because they knew Rocky’s two nights a week was going to be big business. “

It’s worth noting that the film is still helping small theaters stay afloat after all these years.
