. . . There's some really good period drama out there, Gosford Park being one that really impressed me recently in terms of accuracy and feel of its portrayal, but I feel one of the worst offenses is when period dramas use more modern language, including modern swears.
Hmmm . . . can you give any specific examples?

I don't know about cursing, but I cringe when I'm watching a drama that takes place in the 1960s and I hear anachronisms like "lifestyle."

No, I suspect that they just think the whole thing [singing and dancing in musicals] is ridiculous as a live action film, which it is.
Not to me, it isn't.

Maybe it's just because I grew up watching musicals on television and learned to appreciate the form. Like I said, movies aren't reality to begin with.
