Three Cool Movies Starring Donald Sutherland and His Mustache

Don’t Look Now
Co-starring Julie Christie in what many consider to be the peak of director’s Nicolas Roeg’s career, this haunting thriller based on a Daphne DeMaurier short story is possibly one of the best movies of the 1970s. (It’s definitely one of the best featuring the aforementioned Mr. Sutherland and his mustache.) Visually enveloping, ‘Don’t Look Now,’ is a masterpiece of horror. Sutherland was nominated for a BAFTA award for best actor for this performance. His mustache received jack. (Kinda BS, if you ask me.)

Invasion of the Body Snatchers
Remakes are never as good as the original. At least, that’s the prevailing theory. However, Phillip Kaufman’s remake of Don Seigel’s sci-fi masterpiece rivals, if not surpasses the original. Sutherland (and his mustache) play health inspectors in San Francisco when alien spores start creating zombie-like ‘pod people.’ (Also features the best performance by Leonard Neimoy not wearing pointy ears.)

The First Great Train Robbery
Directed by Michael Crichton, based on his book, ‘The First Great Train Robbery,’ is a period action movie, about two men plotting to steal a shipment of gold from a moving train. Suspenseful, fast-paced and exciting. If you’re a fan of heist movies, this one is highly recommended. The movie co-stars Sean Connery (who also has great facial hair, and, actually, has facial hair deserving of his own column. Maybe next time.)
