Original Caption:

New York -- Thousands of movie-goers and spectators jammed the Times Square area and the Astor Theatre for the gala premiere of The Beatles' first feature film, "A Hard Day's Night." Milton Berle is shown hamming it up in a Beatle wig and swapping Beatle-talk with moptop fans who had been standing on line since 5 AM.

Would the original caption from 1964 really have used the turn of phrase "standing on line"? I know that's a New York colloquialism, but I didn't think it was that old, or that if it did exist that long ago, a newspaper would have employed it.
