Sylvester Stallone, he of the Rocky and Rambo film series. Is he meant to look something like Paul?

There are some photographs of Stallone, a certain angle or look of the eyes, which to me resemble McCartney. He certainly has similar eyes.  Once, when Rocky I or II was big in the movie theaters, my friend and I (both of us Beatle and McCartney fans) walked by a gigantic movie poster for the movie featuring Stallone, and my friend turned to me and said: "Monster McCartney".  I instantly saw what he meant.

P.S.:

I think if you put the following people into a blender or a futuristic genetic transformer, you could create a McCartney (though he'd have to wear a turtleneck to cover up the seams):

Sly Stallone

Angela Lansbury

Davy Jones

Bob Costas

Robert Wagner

Thanks Dark Horse; I've had this notion for many years now.  It was nice to find a place to express it, and nice that someone was on the right wavelength to appreciate it!

For Me:

John: 1962- Mid 1964, Late 1966 (How I Won The War) -  Late 1967 (Hello Goodbye Video), Early 1968- Early 1968, 1970 – 1971, 1974 – Mid 1975

Worst for John: Long hair 1968 – 1970, 2001 – 2005

Paul: 1962 – Mid 1968

Worst: Mullet look, and a little bit of how he does now.

George 1962 – 1964 (His haircut when he got to America was too short) 1964 (A Hard Days Night) – 1965 ( Help!) 1967 – 1968 ( Late White Album Sessions), 1995 – 2000

Worst: Long haired: 1970 (Abbey Road) – Until he cut it off.

Ringo 1963 – 1965 ( Help!) 1967 – 1968 ( Mid White Album) 1983- 1987, 2000 – Now :P

Worst: Mid 1965 – 1966 ( Revolver )

And if you saw my love, I'll love her to.

I can imagine John having looked bad in 2001-2005, having been dead for over 20 years.

John worst: 1969ish with the long hair and beard

Or This I think was around 1980. You can tell what the drugs had done to him cause he looks so tired.

 

Paul worst: MULLET

George worst: 1970s perm

Ringo worst: 1965-66

^^ I can't even look at photos of John in his last years because he looks so emaciated.

Oddly, I'm starting to warm to certain periods of Paul's mullet, mostly based on this video where he looks so happy.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v…..LzL17Qe5k0

 

I love how he taps at Linda to sit down at 00:57 like he's afraid she's going to make him crash the car.

He didn't look too bad during Wings Over America either.

I have something semi-on-topic to say.

I've always wondered if, in 1969, George cut his hair and shaved, would he look like he did in '64 or around then?

Paul's best for me are Magical Mystery Tour/Sgt Pepper era:

 

  

Looooove the hair.  

I don't know why but I effing love that sweater vest.  a-hard-days-night-paul-7

I even love him with that moustache.  

The mullet I could handle to a certain extent…  but not when paired with the moustache.

He can't always be perfect I guess..  a-hard-days-night-paul-11

My favourite John look is 64/65 ish..

Aww yeah.  heart

His worst is definately the Jesus look..

George was great during Sgt Pepper, and probably worst during Abbey Road.

Ringo's best for me was during Let it Be, don't really have a worst.

Yes, there's no period of the pornstache that I love. Not on Paul, not on John, not on George. I can tolerate it on Ringo.

Definitely with you on that favorite period for Paul. "All You Need Is Love" to "Mad Day Out." And this photo now being one of my favorites. Is this hairstyle considered a "shag"?

I recently saw a YouTube video of just John's parts from "How I Learned to Love the War," and there are moments where he is matinee-idol handsome.

He looks adorable in this video!  I love how he doesn't even need a band.  Wings most successful album and he was most of the band.  Love that man.  a-hard-days-night-paul-5

I've always thought Paul looked good in the Coming Up video. Just can't decide which Paul.

My take is more on which looks I didn't like. I think they all looked really cool EXCEPT:

 

John: hated the big bushy beard/mountain man look from summer to autumn '69. (the shorter beard in the spring of '69 looked fine)

Paul: didn't care for the greasy beard in January '69

George: didn't like the bushy beard and super long hair of later 1969

Ringo: his Carol Brady-hairdo and mustache during the All You Need Is Love film in June '67…LOL!

So no to Beatles and Beards, check!

And LOL @ Ringo's Carol Brady look, perfect description.
