head shaved / cropped bald, with or without consent
some time ago I saw a scene in a documentary which showed French women getting their hair cropped off with scissors, in the course of the "Epuration" (aftermath of the liberation from Nazi occupation, in 1944) -
and in the series "L'instit" (also from France) there's an episode where a young boy who has cancer gets a headshave by his father. Heartbreaking but at the same time interesting to watch...
Any movies with scenes with headshaves or cropping of hair - as a form of humiliation or punishment, or in the course of a torture scene, or with the consent of the person who gets bald (like the french boy actor above mentioned)?
One well known example of a character turning bald during a movie would, of course, be "Ripley" in the second "Alien" movie (or was it in the third?). But ONSCREEN is favoured, as against OFFSCREEN ;-)
Violent movies are full of things we would NEVER think a moment to inflict upon any other person, and still there's some fascination in it.
