    It's true. Although I suppose you might get the odd Sylvester Stallone or Schwarzenegger impression now, I suppose. But I think society moved more slowly in those days. I seem to remember that in the 80s, the 50s seemed closer to older people then than the 80s does to us now.

    I wonder how much it was due to people's memories of wartime being so powerful and visceral; seeing Casablanca when it was released, at a time of heightened reality and preception, probably stayed with those people much more clearly than us seeing Star Wars.

    It's probably more to do with the fact that those old movies were repeated on pretty much constant hard rotation on the BBC in those days.

    Depends which old people too; older siblings or merely parents. The latter are really really old and boring and to be largely ignored, in any case. The former are old but old the way you want to be old; cool and with more money, better cars and clothes and Radio 1 playing the music of the Sixties and Seventies all day.
