Do you have the sense that I do, that doing the "adjusted numbers" thing in comparing box office is basically bullshit?
They are all BS, actually. Non-adjusted, adjusted, attendance. But it's hard for people today to get a grasp of how much money a movie made in 1937 if they don't have a solid appreciation of how much dollars were worth back then, hence the adjustment.

I think it's at least an interesting approximation. Personally I'd prefer attendance (# of tickets sold).
And that's my opinion.
