Revising Old Movies

Greg Cochran is always saying something interesting. Below, he points out a difference between old movies and new ones, and boy, is he right!  This is from Westhunt.

I was watching Charade the other day, not for the first time, and was noticing that the action scenes with Cary Grant (human fly, and fighting George Kennedy) really weren’t very convincing.  Age. But think what it would be like today: we’d see Audrey Hepburn kicking the living shit out of Kennedy, probably cutting his throat with his own claw – while still being utterly adorable.
