The Mo-vember episode of the Studio 35 Show got us thinking ‘staches. What are the best onscreen mustaches? We chose our 10 favorites. Which big, hairy faces did we miss?
10. Charles Bronson
Hard saying which set of whiskers is more impressive, Charles Bronson’s:
Or Tom Hardy in the title role for the film Bronson, so we’ll call it a tie:
9. Yosemite Sam
Sure, Snidely Whiplash was impressive, but when it comes to mustachioed animated gentlemen, we like the bold statement made by Sam.
8. Wilford Brimley
Our favorite cantankerous man with a mustache, Brimley and his whiskers have been making the world safe for oatmeal and extra terrestrials for generations.
7. Robert Redford
You forget how handsome the Seventies could be until you gander at the young Redford, who can even make an unruly mo’ look good.
6. Mike Ditka
Best NFL ‘stache (and sweater and sunglasses). He’s our Ditka.
5. Tom Selleck
Can’t list famous mustaches without this hirsute Eighties PI.
4. Burt Reynolds
Let’s be honest, the entire Eighties boom in mustaches is due to Tom Selleck and this man. Thank you?
3. The Cast of Tombstone
More facial hair per square screen inch, Tombstone makes other films seem positively unmanly.
2. Ron Burgundy
This mustache escalated quickly. With a mustache like this, you have to keep your head on a swivel. It stings the nostrils.
1. Sam Elliott
Yes, he made the countdown twice! He’s the most impressive part of the Stache Pack that makes up the cast of Tombstone, but the manliness that is Sam Elliot’s facial hair cannot be adequately praised with only one slot on this countdown! It’d be very undude of us.
