Friday the 13th (1980) Behind the Scenes Photo

From: Friday the 13th the Fan's Page Facebook
Here's a pretty rare behind-the-scenes shot of Tom Savini and his assistant Taso Stavrakis moulding the head of Betsy Palmer (Mrs. Voorhees) for her iconic beheading scene in Friday the 13th (1980). Both Savini and Stavrakis undertook the duties of special make-up effects as well as actually playing the killer Mrs. Voorhees in scenes where Betsy Palmer's likeness was not exposed. Savini and Stavrakis played Alice and Mrs' Voorhees in the beheading scene.
