Funnily enough, after that famous victory, schoolkids across the land would put their glasses on upside-down in hope that it would improve their cue skills.
It does make sense though, playing pool/snooker with glasses is a little annoying for exactly this reason - you often look "over" the glasses. I guess these days the pros all were contacts if they are shortsighted.
What's especially interesting to me about this clip is, that it seems to me that they played somewhat more aggressive back then. If this were today I think they'd push the black ball back and forth between the bottom and top cushion until one of them makes a mistake instead of taking such risky shots as Davis and Taylor did there, especially in such an important frame.
