The 70’s were such a great time for visual authenticity, all other concerns aside. Think of McCabe and Mrs. Miller. Altman’s mining town looks distressed, dirty and real! And Mrs. Miller’s whores don’t look *anything* like Hollywood “saloon girls.”
When I saw Paper Moon years ago, “old people” at the time told me it looked exactly like the 1930’s. And Bogdanovich wasn’t afraid to shoot in black & white! No, visual authenticity isn’t everything, but in the ’70’s it seemed so new and innovative and such a break with classical Hollywood cinema visuals.

This is my favorite. I have a great vintage Paper Moon Poster.
