The movies of the 1960s ran the gamut from glossy studio product to a less linear and less inhibited style of filmmaking. It was the decade during which censorship codes were demolished and the studio contract system fell apart. Every genre was strongly represented, from domestic dramas to spectacles, musicals, soap operas, and westerns. Some of the most diverse, daring, colorful, outrageous, and enduring of all motion pictures were released from 1965 to 1969."Screen World" editor Barry Monush tells the reader why his top selections stood out among the other releases of those five years. The text is accompanied by illustrations of movie ads, tie-in book covers, soundtrack albums, sheet music, and other oddities. In addition, each film's entry includes a plot synopsis, the opening date, the studio, and a creative staff and cast listing. From "The Sound of Music to Alfie", "In the Heat of the Night" to "The Lion in Winter", "Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice" to "Planet of the Apes", "Easy Rider", and "Midnight Cowboy", here is a pop culture feast for film buffs and all fans of that interesting point in time that was the late 1960s.
