Stanley Baker's toupee in 'Eve' (d. Joseph Losey, 1962) is a fairly straightforward piece of kit that carries itself with dignity and discretion, only occasionally becoming noticeable in close up.
|Honestly, Stanley, it looks great.|
|Stanley takes it hard.|
The film itself is pretty serious drama about a Welsh novelist / fraud called Tyvian Jones who has hit the big time on the strength of a book written by his dead brother and is living it up in Venice on the stolen glory, not to mention the publishing royalties and film rights. When he meets Eve (Jeanne Moreau) he is sure that his charm and sexual prowess will make her putty in his hands - but Eve is only interested in money, luxury, perversity and cruelty, and refuses any notion of love or exclusivity, which drives him slowly out of his mind and dismantles his life one nut at a time.
|Is it coming unstuck?|
|Nope, it's fine.|
|He hits rock bottom.|
