Watched Marathon Man last night. It was made in 1976. Because I need to know how old everyone is in a movie, I Googled Dustin Hoffman and Roy Scheider when the movie ended. Roy Scheider, born in 1932, was 44 in 1976. Sadly, he’s no longer with us. Dustin Hoffman was born in 1937. In 1976, he was 39. He’s 72 now. I was a little traumatized by that.
Marathon Man came out 32 years after World War II ended. 33 years have passed since the movie came out. I was also a little traumatized by that.
In 1976, I was 12, and 1945 seemed like ancient history. At 45, 1976 kinda seems like yesterday.
