Over the past couple of weeks I have re-watched Citizen Kane, Sink the Bismarck, Seven Samurai, Gone with the Wind and Sunset Boulevard.

While I think the stories, cinematography and characters in these films are all first rate, the one thing that I have noticed which bugs me is the theatrical “over-acting” by many of the actors. I’ve come to the conclusion that this was just the established acting style for that time period since so many actors of that time came from either a stage or silent film background.
