Sure, the effects and other minutia would be different. But what would change about the story? Not every movie's story would change.

I don’t think this is true, really. Every facet of every movie is, in one way or another, molded by the time in which the movie is made.

Maybe, ... I still think it's fun to imagine what those differences would be.

Easy Rider: The guys run into a huge traffic jam halfway to New Orleans and give up the ride. They eventually settle down in Austin where they open a tattoo shop.
