Attention, winter movie stars: Yosemite Sam called and he wants his facial hair back.

Ask Burt Reynolds, Magnum, P.I., or the biker in the Village People: Nothing says mucho macho quite like a 'stache. But these days, movie stars are making pointed use of their male plumage in cerebral potboilers, historical epics, political dramas and  quirky character studies alike.<br>
