The Remarkable Life and Death of Roy L. "Rocky" Dennis | First to Know

He wasn’t supposed to live past the age of seven.

On Dec. 4, 1961, Roy L. “Rocky” Dennis was born in Glendora, California, and was initially thought to be a perfect healthy baby. It wasn’t until an X-ray technician noticed a slight cranial anomaly when he was 18-months-old that doctors began questioning what was wrong with the adorable little boy. What started out as just a routine tonsillectomy turned into a decade long battle for survival.

Mask Reviews & Ratings

Hard to Watch at Times, But a Very Good Film.

Author: tfrizzell from United States

The true story of Rocky Dennis (Eric Stoltz) is the subject of this heart-breaking film that pulls absolutely no punches. The youngster was born with a disease that caused his face to be terribly deformed, making it appear that he had a mask on. Cher is excellent as Stoltz's drug-addicted mother who is so good with him, but so poor with most everyone else. Sam Elliott also leaves a lasting impression as a biker who is much gentler than he appears. An amazing screenplay and the flawless direction of Peter Bogdanovich help to make "Mask" one of the best films of the 1980s. Terribly over-looked. 4.5 out of 5 stars.
