The year I was born. And an amazing year for movies. It's hard to imagine that you could see all these films on the big screen in one given year.
The Lion in the Winter
More theatrical than cinematic but I love the venomous dialog.
The Night of the Living Dead
Hard to imagine this came out the same year as The Odd Couple. Still terrifying.
The Odd Couple
For the Pigeon sisters scene alone.
Once Upon a Time in the West
My favorite Spaghetti Western of all time. One of the reasons is in the picture.
The Planet of the Apes
Spoiler alert in picture.
Rome and Juliet
Not one hundred percent successful by any means. But, for me, the best film version of one of the greatest stories in the English language.
If I could bring one horror film to my desert island, this is it. Never takes a mis-step.
Burt Lancaster swims home via the neighborhood pools. More of a curiosity than a great film, and the John Cheever story it is based on is better, but it's still a lot of fun.
Even though it's on my top ten, I'm lukewarm on this film. Parts of it, however, are truly amazing.
Where Eagles Dare
Broadsword calling Danny Boy.
