Latex bald head – believable?

Can you think of any film in which they used a latex covering to make an actor appear to be bald, and the effect was believable?

It's a tough question because if it was really believable, I would have thought they were really bald.

I agree, it is tough. It occurred to me when I was watching 10 Rillington Place (1971) and was struck by how unconvincing Richard Attenborough's bald head was, even though the movie appeared to be well made. It made me wonder if latex bald heads always look fake, or if the ones I'm noticing are only those that aren't done well.
