The classic film characters on this list all have epic, unique, and memorable mustaches. Which film characters have the best mustaches?

Though many characters from Western films have some impressive 'staches, that genre doesn't have a monopoly on the facial hair look.

Daniel Day-Lewis appears twice on this list, thanks to his excellent choice in roles, apparently only selecting characters who absolute must have a mustache.
