I have always enjoyed the movies from the '30s, '40s, and '50s when pipe smoking was common in the movie. It wasn't always the main character, but one usually saw a pipe or two. Now, we rarely see people in real live enjoying a pipe, but someone is smoking them because the local tobacco shops, even those that specialize in cigarettes and vapes sell 7 or 8 pipe tobacco OTCs.
A recent peeve for me, is that modern takes on period pieces show no pipe smoking whatsoever, when it should be about 20% as a guesstimate.
I think there is a ban on any kind of smoking in movies today. At least American movies. However if you look at foreign movies, German and Northern Europe, they smoke cigarettes like fiends. Kind of weird to see the difference.
