Have you ever talked about old movies, and someone younger doesn't know the famous (albeit) older actor?
My son-in-law, a nice guy in his 30's, has a poster of James Dean on his wall. My daughter loves Audrey Hepburn. One day, I was gushing about Clark Gable in "It Happened One Night", and he said, "Who?"
What? When he said he hadn't seen "Gone With the Wind", I almost fell over. When I think of the King of Hollywood's gorgeous face, I still get light-headed. If only we'd met. (mournfully)
So, has anyone else been exposed to this phenomena?
