This study examines the changes in the American film industry, audiences, and feature films between 1965 and 1975. With transformations in production codes, adjustments in national narratives, a rise in independent filmmaking, and a new generation of directors and producers addressing controversial issues on the mainstream screen, film was a major influence on the social changes that defined these years. After a contextual history of film during this era, several key films are discussed, including ""The Graduate"", ""Alice's Restaurant"", ""Easy Rider"", ""Midnight Cowboy"", ""M*A*S*H"", ""McCabe and Mrs. Miller"", ""Little Big Man"", and ""The Godfather"" series. The author describes how these films represented a generation, constructed and deconstructed American culture, and made important contributions during ten years of great change in America.
