The Many Wigs of LVC

The 1970's were hair raising time for LVC. From Captain Apache onwards, Lee was subjected to wearing some pretty horribly hairpieces, culminating in the frightening Father John wig in God's Gun!

Let's take a look back, chronologically at some of these great looks!

 Captain Apache

 The Magnificent 7 Ride

 The Stranger and The Gunfighter

 Nowhere to Hide

God's Gun


  1. The one in "Stranger and the Gunfighter" looks best. Of course it started with Captain Apache because he was playing an "Indian/Native American". They never go bald. I remember when a guy with whom I worked mentioned to be he can't grow a beard & never needs to shave. I said "that is odd. Wonder why". And he said "I'm almost full blooded Indian and Indians can't grow a beard but they never go bald". I said "You're kidding I didn't know that". And he said "You should have known that. Think about it. Have you ever seen a bald headed Indian"?

  2. The history of the lace wig dates back to at least the early 1990’S when lace wigs first began to be used in Hollywood for theatrical purposes in movies and on stage. Eventually, celebrities and their stylists began to realize the potential for the lace wig to be used not only as a part of character and theatrical makeup, but as a way to add glamour and versatility to one’s everyday look. Intially, when lace wigs first started to become available for public use, they were extremely expensive, bulky and not very realistic looking.

  3. Wow,the event is very old,but at that time,wearing wig is rather great!

  4. There might some different approaches according to place or knowledge. Your skills depends on how you got an opportunity and where you have trained. Personal or professional training might distinguish between each other. วิก ผม ชาย

  5. Best wigs are in "The Stranger and the Gunfighter and more in "The Return of Sabata", very nice grey hair and perfectly natural
