I am trying figuring out the line of thought
old school hard light DP's had when lighting
interiors for WS or MS...

Bright lit interiors, not noir and in color.

There seams having multiple shadows not being a problem,
and BG light/s not necessarily fallowing a motivated source.

It feels like throwing light on what should be seen.

I wonder, couldn't they use/create room ambience (at that time)
and light locally for action and talent?
Even BG, but with less hard light sources?
(well.. my line of thought)

Recent hard lit films that i watched - Patton (1970) and Gone with the Wind (1939).

I am trying to figure an order in there, cause it still looks good.

Well, good...

That's maybe another discussion...
about the impact of the first movies
watched as a kid and their role in creating the
feeling of what a (good) movie LOOKS like.

:)

Sorry if not being clear.
