Our next celebrity mustaches is possibly the most famous mustache of the 1970s ...

Burt Reynolds in Smokey and the Bandit

No. 3: Burt Reynolds

The Bandit makes this list because, let's face it, any list of best mustaches without him just ain't worth its weight in mustache wax.

Any conversation about 1970s mustaches begins and ends with Reynolds. His swatch of lip hair -- seemingly in perpetual motion as he smacked an everlasting piece of gum -- could almost serve as shorthand for everything that was cool about the decade.

Now in his 70s, Reynolds -- and his mustache -- just keeps on truckin'. After glory days that saw him star in such films as "Deliverance," "White Lightning" and "Smokey and the Bandit," he hit some rough patches before making a comeback with 1997's "Boogie Nights," a role that earned him an Academy Award nomination.

You can make an argument he was robbed for not winning that Oscar, but the real loser was his mustache, which should have had a nomination all to itself.

The owner of our next celeb 'stache knows a thing or two about blue-eyed soul ...

Hall and Oates album cover

No. 2: John Oates

Two men, six No. 1 hits, seven platinum albums … and one amazing mustache.

That would be the blue-eyed soul duo Hall & Oates of course. And while Daryl Hall captured much of the attention as the main vocalist, the real star was John Oates' mustache.

How iconic is this 'stache? So much so that casual fans who can't keep the two straight often refer to Oates simply as "the one with the mustache."

Find any picture of the duo in their prime -- a span that included such hits as "Rich Girl" and "Kiss on My List" -- and see what your eye goes first. If it isn't Oates' mustache, you're either lying or we owe you a dollar.

The caterpillar-like mustache was so amazing that it would have landed Oates the top spot on our list if he hadn't shaved it off in recent years.

Without that trademark mustache, we just don't know who you are any more Oates -- and we mean that literally.

Our top celebrity mustache was so awesome, it helped solve crimes ...

No. 1: Tom Selleck
