I was reading the WSR of straw dogs and got to the part of "1.0 mono scratchy audio" and it dawned on me how awful movies from that era looks and sounds. Movies from the 50s and 60s on the whole seem great compared to the movies in the 70s. Taxi Driver, Roger Moore's Bond pictures, Peckinpaw's films(except for the wild bunch) come to mind... colors seem faded or wrong, audio awful even when it's redone. Did they change film stock or something? End to the studio system dry up money for quality films or am I just thinking of bad examples?
