O Tempora! O Mores!!

Happened to tune in AMC's run of "The Asphalt Jungle" late this morning. Pretty good film (John Huston, 1950), although some of the acting was almost as black-and-white as the movie.

Anyhoo, things have changed, no?

These days we watch cops-and-robbers shows with the cops dressing pretty much like the robbers.

In Jungle, the robbers all wore suits, white shirts, and ties while doing the crime, which required them to drop into a sewer, whack through a brick wall, and blow out a vault door.

Fastidious, if nothing else.
