I saw Ciliian Murphy in the hit movie “Oppenheimer.” J. Robert Oppenheimer was the Father of the Atomic bomb .  And the movie is brilliant.   I predict Cillian Murphy as a new SuperStar.  He is very strong in  the Universal movie which will get many Oscars for sure, probably at least one for Murphy, and one for Christopher Nolan, writer, director, the man who made it all happen and is running a blockbuster marketing campaign (accolades for that alone.) “I did insist on scheduling around Cillian’s haircut,” Nolan has said “because I’m very allergic to wigs in movies.”  To see the official trailer of the movie, CLICK HERE The hair won’t set any trends in  this movie but it does vary as the years go by.  But maybe men will wear more hats, as Oppenheimer does in this movie, probably often because the hair was at the wrong length for the scene!!!

After being bowled over by the “Oppenheimer” movie, I was motivated to go back and see Murphy in the BBC’s “Peaky Blinders” with 6 seasons on Netflix, which started in 2013 and ended in 2022, but is still available. Cillian Murphy is so charismatic, he almost jumps out of the tv set of this British period drama which takes place from 1919 to 1933, created by Steven Knight.   Murphy stars as crime boss Tommy Shelby and became a hair icon because of his undercut/fade with length on top. Which many cast members also wear.   To see the “Gentleman’s Journal” article with more details on the hair, CLICK

Louise Brooks With Her Lulu Bob - 1929

From “Diary of a Lost Girl” 1929 Pabst Movie

Know your hair history.  This is Louise Brooks drinking champagne in the whorehouse in “Diary of a Lost Girl” a 1929 silent film directed by Pabst in Germany.  She was the first to make the bob famous, way back in the early 20s, way before anyone else.  The look was her trademark, a look she wore in every movie she made.  It will never date.   To see more on this and more hair on Old Hollywood Icons, CLICK HERE
