Inflation

Watched some of The Eiger Sanction today. What with the constant boozing, casual sexism, homosexual stereotypes (check out Jack Cassidy as the amazingly flaming Miles Mellough with a dog named "Faggot"), and prehistoric mountain climbing technology (in the early rock climbing scenes they're not even wearing swami harnesses, just a loop of rope tied around their bodies; later they're using around the waist belays) the movie feels incredibly dated. But you know what's really dated? Clint's a professional assassin who's standard fee is $10,000
