That was my husband's argument. My son sees his more ... all require maintenance which makes the time-saving argument pretty spurious.

I grew mine years ago because I was fed-up with shaving each morning, especially since convention dictates that if you ... from stubble. Then 30 days of letting it grow. Then back to 5-10 minutes with the clippers. Hardly labour intensive.

Mine is a trimmed look, never more than 1/2 to 3/4 inch long. I had to work and beg long enough to get this far. Even so,=20 maintenance is once or twice a week with the beard trimmer and=20 running the electric shaver over my neck. 5 minutes max. =20

I've read the book but I don't remember that being ... not yet seen, but didn't know about anything more recent.

The original movie (the incomparable Donat) was 1939.

That is a wonderful movie, not "Rambo" mind you, but it is wonderful nevertheless.
1969 was Peter O'Toole in a 'musical' version. Not, IMHO, a success.

O'Toole has had mixed success.
1984 and 2002 saw TV versions over here.

It is a good story. I'll have to take a look at some later attempts.

Even though the world knows that these areas are susceptible to this sort of thing, there apparently are no warning systems in place to attempt to mitigate a disaster like this even for those areas literally a 1000 km away, a distance that puts the inundation, I think, a couple of hours from the original seismic event. It is simply unconscionable that I could find out here in America about this threat before people who are actually at grave risk could.

Isn't Peter O'Toole the actor who looks sort of like Truly Donovan?

Steny '08!

My situation exactly. My beard is full-face. Maintenance comes not as regularly as yours, though, but only after my wife and son have nagged me long enough about it.

I find that the intrusion of the ends of my moustache between me and my coffee is the signal.

Fer sher. I put it in the same category as another Donat vehicle - The Winslow Boy (original 1948). Wonderful movie, also featuring another great actress who rarely gets a mention these days - Margaret Leighton. The relationship between her character and Donat's is brilliantly understated. Both actors destined for sadly early deaths. Cedric Hardwicke is, of course, Cedric Hardwicke. Anything less and we'd have been able to claim our money back.

And which of them, do you think, will be the more flattered?

Yes, when my facial hair gets in the way of what I'm eating or drinking, it has to be trimmed. I do trim my moustache much more often than my beard. It's easier. And now that I've discovered that my local barber will do it for no extra charge when I get a haircut, I just might leave all the beard trimming to him.
