Badass Nursing Home Residents Recreate Famous Movie Scenes

Senior citizens from nursing homes in Essen, Mülheim and other towns across Germany have proved that having fun has nothing to to with your age. The young-at-heart nursing home residents created a calendar of brilliant pictures for the Essenes Contillia Group called “Classics 2014” in which they replace famous movie stars in some of their favorite classic movie scenes.

The “movie stars” have entered scenes from famous movies like “Breakfast at Tiffany’s,” “The Seven Year Itch” and “Saturday Night Fever.” The only difference, of course, is that these “movie stars” are between 75 and 98 years of age.

They used wigs, costumes and make-up to turn themselves into famous movie stars like James Dean, Audrey Hepburn and Patrick Swayze. The illusion was completed with a healthy dose of Photoshop. John Liedtke, the 92-year-old who posed as Patrick Swayze for the Dirty Dancing shot, said “Back when I was young, it would have been easy. Nowadays, the computer’s bag of tricks helps.”

Unfortunately, most of us will only be able to enjoy these pictures digitally, because the calendar won’t be for sale. It was created simply as a gift for nursing home residents, employees and family members. All we can do is hope that we are at least half as awesome as they are when we’re their age!
