They're also less inductive.

Yes, old carbon comp resistors *can* drift. Just a thought: if
you're replacing CCs with film resistors, keep in mind one of CC's
attributes - their high surge capacity. Analyze or measure the
circuit (most likely during turn-on), and overrate the replacement's
power if necessary.
