Great Moments in Movie Staches

.
I've still never managed to watch The Lives of a Bengal Lancer all the way through from start to finish but I did catch the last act on TCM this past weekend and was reminded that more than anything else Gary Cooper has a mustache in this movie.
.
.
We've posted about this hella gay scene involving Coop and co-star Richard Cromwell before (see here) but, well, not with gifs! And not with video either. I couldn't find the clip online so I recorded it - you'll have to make due without sound but believe me, the visuals are plenty...
.
.
The scene continues even past this point and involves Franchot Tone wrangling a snake for Gary Cooper - it's ridiculous, utterly ridiculous, in the best of ways. But you'll have to watch the whole movie for that. For now a smattering of gifs after the jump...

This was my favorite movie as a kid. Strangely, I’ve never seen it as an adult. Don’t know if its imperialist/racial politics would work for me now. But Gary Cooper was at his hottest.
