Geez Louise

Colin Convert in Friday's Strib on the Get Smart movie:

It revives the old TV franchise with the same slapstick derring-do and lightweight comedy that tickled audiences in the waning days of the Cold War.

Get Smart aired throughout the last half of the sixties, meaning it ended about twenty years before the Cold War was over. That ain't the "waning days."
