Without a plugin (I learnt this from Steve Gotz)..
Image control > B&W
Then adjust Color Balance - Midtone Blue -50
Gaussian Blur -10 (or less)
Optional color balance +15 on Midtone Red
Then to add the scratches download filmgrain.zip (particle illusion by wondertouch) but I think I found it at Steve's site (search Steven Gotz) It is a freezip file that you import as numbered stills and repeat on timeline as often as you need - to match the clip length. Works well.
It is unfortunate, though, that after all this time Premiere still does not have this effect built-in, with fully customizable parameters such as grain size and amount, scratch length and frequency, gate weave, dust and dirt size and amount, vignetting etc.
My thoughts too Jim. I've not done old movie for a while and before I responded I went to CS3 thinking that it is probably now included as an effect - alas no
You might also want to look at creating a bit of a vignette of black (Track Matte w/ Gaussian Blur to it) to give the appearance of light fall-off, like very old cine lenses.
