I’m an idiot. I was thinking about The Ipcress File one day, and the ineffable stylishness of Michael Caine and his black-framed specs, and thought that coming up with a list of similarly awesome (or in some other way, striking) glasses worn in the movies would be quick and easy. It took me three months. SHEESH.
This, naturally, is not only because it turns out there are many more amazing spectacled movie characters than I previously knew about, but also because a stubborn streak of perfectionism meant I had to keep discovering MORE movie glasses. And more. And still more. And then it became overwhelming and I felt I was drowning in glasses and had to run away and hyperventilate for a while before I felt I could continue with my movie glasses mission.
