On Feb. 13, 1938, Oliver Reed was born … and then he grew his mustache. OK, there were actually some other events in between, and Reed was known best as a popular actor, starring in movies including Tommy, Arthur! and Gladiator. But it can't be denied that his mustache was a glorious specimen, and that's what we're celebrating today. Reed died 15 years ago, May 2, 1999. In honor of his life and his facial hair, we present this gallery of some of history's greatest mustaches. Click any photo for more information.
