Palm Sunday classic!

Every year for I don't know how many.
If I appear taller than other men it is because I am standing on the shoulders of others.

Many of those old films are like that. Sometimes it appears as if they are acting it like they would on stage instead of film, so it comes off as over exaggerated. 
"I expect perdition, I always have. I keep this building at my back, and several guns handy, in case perdition arrives in a form that's susceptible to bullets. I expect it will come in the disease form, though. I'm susceptible to diseases, and you can't shoot a damned disease." ~ Judge Roy Bean, Streets of Laredo

For the Patriots of this country, the Constitution is second only to the Bible for most. For those who love this country, but do not share my personal beliefs, it is their Bible. To them nothing comes before the Constitution of these United States of America. For this we are all labeled potential terrorists. ~ Dean Garrison

Back in that era, even in the mid to late 50's, these actors were almost all, especially the leads, involved in stage.  Imagine what it must have been like to film a movie, and work it out with your cast being tied to stage productions that would run for months and never in sync with each other.

I thought this thread would be political. Not. Even. Close. :-[
""It may be laid down as a primary position, and the basis of our system, that every Citizen who enjoys the protection of a free Government, owes not only a proportion of his property, but even his personal services to the defence of it, and consequently that the Citizens of America (with a few legal and official exceptions) from 18 to 50 Years of Age should be borne on the Militia Rolls, provided with uniform Arms, and so far accustomed to the use of them, that the Total strength of the Country might be called forth at a Short Notice on any very interesting Emergency." - George Washington. Letter to Alexander Hamilton, Friday, May 02, 1783

Produced in 1956 for only $12,000,000 bucks...

Times have changed!

With some use of Google, here is how that translates:

$12 million in 1956 = $115 million in 2020

The Irishman (#3 movie last year = $159 million production budget

It appears to me that Hollywood is doing a pretty good job of staying ahead of inflation.

But Heston trumps De Niro all day long...  I will not watch another De Niro flick again!

Say it again Timothy,....say it again.
Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom.
It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves.
-William Pitt, British Prime-Minister (1759-1806)
