From Russia with Love, or Thunderball, or maybe On Her Majesty’s Secret Service.

I also like The Ipcress File, Dr. Strangelove, Bullitt, The Wild Bunch…

Dr. Strangelove (or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb). In the Heat of the Night is a close second with A Patch of Blue coming in third. Easy Rider and Midnight Cowboy both get honorable mentions.

“The Graduate”

AstroChuck's avatar

It’s between The Odd Couple, The Producers, The Graduate, The Loved One, and Dr. Strangelove (or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb.)
Honerable Mention to The Mouse That Roared.

talkglassofmilk- How did your answer end up above mine when you answered afterwards? That’s the second time that’s happened to me. Weird.

AstroChuck – you were still “crafting a response” when I pressed Answer!

@AC, I can’t believe I forgot about The Graduate!! I have been known to stand outside shaking my screen door and screaming “ELAAIINNNE!!” Ok that’s not true, but I have recommended to each of my sons that they go into plastics, and I have been heard muttering “Mr. Robinson are you trying to seduce me?” (I’m a girl, so it would be Mr. Robinson seducing me rather than Mrs.)

there problem solved

AstroChuck's avatar

Tgom- No. I had already answered but I think I know what happened. I was correcting a typo and that must have put my answer back in queue.

I’m a big fan of 2001: A Space Odyssey

“The hills are alive with The Sound of Music…”

wrestlemaniac's avatar

ahh a classic.

AstroChuck's avatar

My mistake. The Mouse That Roared came out in 1959. So instead, I’d like to add to different Peter Sellers movies from the ‘60s, The Pink Panther and the follow up A Shot in the Dark.

peter sellers as inspector Clouseau, he is a natural, the first time i saw the movies i laughed so much i even laughed in my sleep and fell out of bed. :D

SuperMouse's avatar

@AstroChuck, Shot in the Dark reminded me of Wait Until Dark, Audrey Hepburn and Alan Arkin as one of the creepiest bad guys ever!

Psyco or Manchurian Candidate

AstroChuck's avatar

I’d also like to add two Sidney Poitier films, Lillies of the Field and A Patch of Blue. Another great one is To Kill a Mockingbird with Gregory Peck.

A Raisin in the Sun
Please Don’t Eat the Daisies
Play Misty for Me
Butterflies Are Free (that might actually be early 70s. but it’s still amazing)

Carla's avatar

The Wild Bunch, Easy Rider, The Birds, The Great Escape.

wrestlemaniac's avatar

To kill a mockingbird that was a great movie, unless i’m mistaken wasn’t that from like the 50’s

MacBean's avatar

@wrestlemaniac—Nope. The 60s. The book was published in 1960, so the movie was definitely after that.

wrestlemaniac's avatar

Well you’re the expert! but the version i saw was black and white.
