|My Madstache is not a Sadstache.|
There’s just something about Mads Mikkelsen’s mustache in Men & Chicken that inspires me. It’s a little bit of 1970s mustache history sitting there on Mads Mikkelsen’s face. And that is enough inspiration for me to make a gallery of Mustaches in Film History!
Because I’m providing serious context, you know. Serious. Context.
|C’mon in, the context is fine…|
Remember when Christopher Lee was a Dracula? I mean, remember when Christopher Lee was the Dracula? No, not that one. This one with the sweet, sweet ‘stache.
|That fox back there sure likes it. No, not a lady, a *fox*.|
|Peter Wyngarde’s mustache was his manager throughout the 1970s.|
And then there’s… Well. Sean Connery in Zardoz (1974)
|There is so much going on here, yet the ‘stache comes through loud and clear.|
And in Neo-Retro Seventies ‘Staches, Luke Evans in Vanguard Alumnus Ben Wheatley’s High Rise.
|(Don’t make eye-contact with the mustache. I think it’s angry)|
And the wonder of Mad Men‘s Roger Sterling.
|“I’m a Dracula, you know. Really.”|
See the Madstache and even more mustaches at the final screening of MEN & CHICKEN:
