Actually most of the differences are very superficial -- relating to costume, lighting, makeup and the like, as well as the lingo stuff already
My surprise from time to time is just how "modern" an occasional character appears in the old movies -- like you could just see them walk down a
street today and interact with people in what would be a completely natural way.
This has happened so often, that I have often imagined people back as far as the cave-man days having all the same personalities we do today: the
wise-guy, the one constantly cracking other people up, the snooty one who thinks he's better than anyone else - and on and on.
I don't think we've changed much at all in terms of personalities from time immemorial. Its just the costume, and some of the lingo that changes
with the times.
