Sam Elliott’s Mustache!

Sam-ElliottEven more famous than his gruff drawl which is the voice-over to commercials such as Coors beer, the American Beef Council, and Dodge Ram trucks, is the mustache of Sam Elliott. Naturally everyone loves Burt Reynolds’ mustache, which we featured in an earlier post, but the one Sam Elliott cultivates practically has a life of its own!
For sure Elliott is best known for his cowboy persona (The Sacketts, Shadow Riders, Conagher, Tombstone, The Big Lebowski), but his non-western—and non-mustachioed—roles are just as accomplished (Mask, Rush, The Contender, We Were Soldiers, Hulk).
There are 15 numbered photos of Sam that follow. Below those are the accompanying films of his listed in chronological order. You must match the mustache to the movie or TV miniseries. Good luck!

    If you ask me, Sam is sex with or without the mustache (sigh) I wouldn’t kick him out of bed…..(laugh)

    Number (4) Mask? I don’t think so……….

  • Mary Sandra Vieceli

    I LOVE him in those neat Louis Lamour westerns…..he is perfect!

    • BoB Maher

      Louis thought so, too.

    I BELIEVE THAT SAM IS RIGHT THERE WITH THE DUKE AND EASTWOOD. HE HAS A GREAT VOICE AND THE PERSONALITY TO GO WITH IT. I THINK HE PLAY ANY ROLE WHETHER IT BE GOOD GUY BAD GUY OR COMEDY. HE IS JUST A GREAT ACTOR.

  • FRANK TAGLIERI

    I THINK THAT SAM ELLIOT SHOULD GET A LOT MORE RECOGNITION THAN HE RECEIVES, BECAUSE HE HAS AN INCREDIBLE TRACK RECORD IN FILMS FOR HIS ACTING CHOPS. AND THAT HE’S MARRIED TO ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL WOMEN IN HOLLYWOOD..KATHERINE ROSS..ENOUGH SAID…FRANK COLLETT.

    I liked his shirt in MASK, it said “Moustache rides for free!”

  • J NIcholas

    Sorry but you have the first three at least wrong!
    The first is The Sacketts, where he plays cards in the mining camp. The third is Gettysburg The hat gives it away and nine it the Shadow Riders. And where is The Boy Scout and the Ranger? Don’t get one of my favourite actors mixed up!

    Johnnie & J Nicholas–This post is a quiz where you have to guess the name of the movie. When you highlight or triple-click the bulleted text, say “The Sacketts (1979),” you’ll find that the hidden number at the end does indeed properly correspond as picture #1, Mask is picture #12, and so on.

    I have been a Sam Elliott fan from day one. I agree he should receive more recognition on his acting. I dated a tall handsome cowboy who had the Sam Elliot look and body language, and it was fun to have people stop and stare and actualy ask if he was Sam Elliot.
