Awesome Nursing Home Residents Reenact Famous Movie Scenes 

Whoever said Granny couldn't do a wicked Marilyn was dead wrong.

The best thing about a classic movie is that it never gets old. Even when its stars do.

German nursing home residents put that truism to the test in towns across Germany — including Essen and Mülheim.

Select senior citizens photographed themselves recreating famous movie scenes from such films as "Breakfast at Tiffany's" and "Titanic."

They put the photos together in a calendar called "Classics 2014." A pun.

John Liedtke, 92, played Patrick Swayze in the famous lake scene from "Dirty Dancing" where he hoists Baby over his head.

"I am not quite strong enough to lift a lady over my head anymore," Liedtke told media. "Back when I was young, it would have been easy. Nowadays I need the computer tricks to do it."

The oldest photographed resident was Walter Loeser, who appears below in a scene from the 1969 film "Easy Rider."

In a cruel plot twist, the calendar isn't for sale. The old folks just wanted to give it as gifts to nursing home staff and their families.
