Celebrity Facial Hair of the Day: Sylvester Stallone in Nighthawks

Earlier today, I was watching First Blood, better known as "the first Rambo movie", and very much enjoyed a deleted scene in which Sylvester Stallone sports a mustache that landed squarely in between the Fu Manchu and Hulk Hogan mustache slots on the mustache continuum.  Alas, that mustache doesn't appear immortalized online, as far as I can tell, but it reminded me of Stallone's greatest hour in his career as a facial hair grower: the shockingly good 1981 action film Nighthawks.  (Seriously, the movie's about Stallone playing Detective Deke DaSilva while teaming up with Billy Dee Williams to take on Rutger Hauer, who plays a terrorist named Wulfgar.  The movie's THAT good.)

Now, let's take a look at that facial hair!  (If you're feeling lucky, clicky makes the little pictures bigger!)
Note that it's difficult to determine whether or not the beard is growing out of his face, or is an extension of his perm-mullet.

Unfortunately, this ruins stealth mode.
Side View.  As you can see, ladies were impressed.
Billy Dee wants to comment, but knows better.
This beard goes well with a beret!
I'm not sure if he's undercover as a business man or as the spawn of Sasquatch and Jack the Ripper...
Wouldn't you feel safe if you saw that beard flying a police helicopter?
