50 best movie moustaches

Men are easily divided into two distinct categories: those who can grow moustaches and those who can't.

For those who can't, life is a bleak endurance test, full of envy, anger and frustration. For those who can, life boasts endless possibilities and endless image changes. No prizes for guessing which type of man finds it easier to evade police capture.

To celebrate the wonder of facial hair, we've assembled a list of moustache heroes from film.
