Topic: YOLT toupee ?

My wife is a Trichologist by profession and she has to make regular visits to Wigmakers.

About three weeks ago she visited a Wigmaker in Barnet and he had been sorting out his stockroom as he is due to retire soon as he has been wigmaking for over 45 years.

He showed my wife this oriental box which contained a toupee/wig wrapped in a paper bag, there was a some writing on a label which read 'S Connery 67'.

We are now in the process of investigating whether this was the actual one used in the latter oriental parts of YOLT.

Attached are some pictures, If anybody can help with information or photographs that would be appreciated.  ajb007/martini

I'm a Bondologist, not a Trichologist, but it sure looks like the piece Connery wore to look "Japanese"!

During our investigations my wife has had to brush up on 1960's toupee techniques and I have combed through several photographic archives and we both think it will be worth it to find out its history.

Re: YOLT toupee ?

maybe we need 2 new threads:

1. Pros and cons of Connery's hairpiece against a simple Roger Moore combover
2. Ranking Connery's toupees by movies, director and Bond girls  ajb007/biggrin

And probably Dell Deaton may find out exclusively that Connery had an undiscovered dress wig on set for the not-closeup scenes  ajb007/biggrin

Well this just makes the hairs on the back of my rug stand up.

Few people know that actually that little monster has much more cred than what's publically known.

After it's stint on SC's bonce, it starred in the incredible hulk, had brief appearances on Tom Sellek's top lip in Magnum PI and in it's later life starred alongside Chris Pine in Star Trek: In To Darkness as a revived tribble.

Alas, it succumbed to it's hair raising lifestyle after OD'ing on Just For Men and Timotei. It's final resting place was previously unknown until being unearthed by AJB's own AA.
