    I saw a link to this in a thread on here a while back but can't find it now (I have looked). It was The Balland Of John McLane, a re-edit of Die Hard done like an old silent movie...link?

    There were talking movies in 1942.

    Perhaps you are thinking of 1922.

    I know, but would it have been so complicated to name this thread "Die Hard 1922"?

    And I don't think they had machine guns, helicopters or skyscrapers in 1922 anyway.

    it was just a re-edit of the movie...they put it in black and white, and had the black cards with the writing on them and stuff..."yippie kay yay one who has fornicated with ones mother" :o

    they dont, it was a joke clip, meant to be funny...as if "what if die hard was done in the style of silent films"...it's great...like, all the fights are sped up like they used to, so it's more comical than brutal...I love it...I actually found the link too...oh and it's Die Hard: 1924- The Ballad Of John McClane
