Those are some seriously intense mustaches we’ve got in the 1982 Western, Shadow Riders. Pictured here is Tom Selleck as Mac Traven, a Civil War veteran who fought for the North, while his brother, Dal (Sam Elliott), was allied with the South. 

Despite opposing sides during the war, the siblings must join forces when they return home to find their younger brother and a fiance, have been kidnapped by rebels who refuse to accept the Confederacy’s defeat. 

The made-for-television western was based on the book of the same name by Louis L'Amour. It was directed by Andrew V. McLaglen and also starred Dominique Dunne and Katharine Ross.
