Lot of wankery in that list, may need to go do some viewing to redress the balance. Lots of Westerns though. Wankery and Westerns defined the 60s.

Never seems to be on TV that one :(

The first time I saw it was on TV (I have a feeling it was Channel 4, but I could be completely wrong. Was definitely a terrestrial channel)! For which I'm eternally grateful, as it's a fucking brilliant film, and I'm sure I'd never have thought to watch it otherwise.

Where Eagles Dare - A fantastic boy's own adventure. Richard Burton and Clint Eastwood, along with a rag tag group (including Mary Ure) infiltrate a castle to rescue a downed US general, captured by the Nazis. But that's only the half of it. A brilliant opening, is followed by a fair bit of intrigue - is there a double agent in the group? A great escape followed by a tense assault on the castle and just as everything is about to kick off, the film slams the brakes on for a 20 minute 'reveal' that's as tense as anything you're likely to see. The next 45 minutes is non-stop action, be it gun fights in tight corridors, mass destruction via explosives or a brutal cable car fight. The film just never lets up, with great turns from the three leads and a wonderful spy plot wrapped around an epic action flick. I've seen this about fifty times and it never fails to raise a smile. And you can't not love that theme.

From Russia With Love - Many claim this is as close to Fleming's Bond as the series got. The humour is toned right down, as are the gadgets. Connery plays it about as straight and deadly as he was ever going to, and he matched fist for fist by Robert Shaw, as formidable a villain as the series could manage, outside of Goldfinger. That said, Lotte Lenya's Rosa Klebb is simply terrifying. The final fight is a damn vicious one as well. This isn't my favourite Bond film (Diamonds are Forever) but it's a very tight action flick with pitch perfect work all around. Hard to believe that Roger Moore is playing the same character in Moonraker and Octopussy.

Carry on Screaming - Possibly my favourite Carry On film of the series, which takes some doing given that Sid James wasn't in the flick (IIRC, he was too ill to take the role played by Harry H Corbett). Carry On does Hammer horror and does it so well that it feels less like one of the series because it's so well put together and written. The film were cheaply put together as barely veiled sex farces but Screaming generally steered clear of that, earning its laughs in other ways. That's not to say Fennela Fielding wasn't smoking hot (literally) and Kenneth Williams camped it up wonderfully, as usual. I think what worked to its advantage was Corbett, playing the film as straight as possible. The look of the film also worked well, as did the ever reliable supporting cast (Peter Butterworth was superb, one of his best Carry On roles). I'd also say it's one of the few Carry On films that people who dislike the series can enjoy.

Goldfinger - While Bond was never more dangerous than in From Russia With Love, he was never more cool than he was in Goldfinger. Right from the opening, with Connery stepping out of a scuba suit in his pristine tuxedo, you knew you were watching one cool cat. Once things really kicked off, with Shirley Eaton's iconic scene, there was no stopping him. The DB5 was just he icing on an already exciting film (or cake). What stands out, like From Russia... is the bad guy. Gert Frobe was a formidable presence as Goldfinger, no more so than in the infamous "No Mr Bond, I expect you to die" sequence. Honor Blackman was also solid support, verbally sparring with Connery and matching him all the way. A great finale too, with a memorable fight against Oddjob, who was the best silent villain until Jaws came along (though he wasn't strictly silent)

Jason & The Argonauts - Movie magic at its best. After a pretty violent opening the film really gets going when the Argonauts head on their quest for The Golden Fleece. I remember the first time I saw Talos move, I was just blown away by it. The battle of the Harpies, Triton holding up the cliffs, and the Hydra fight, then what is one of the greatest scenes in history - Jason & co Vs The Skeletons! It simply defied belief - I know it took something like six months to shoot but damn, it was worth it. I reckon even now, with all the tricks of CGi, it would be hard to replicate such a scene convincingly.

Dr Strangelove - An absolutely stunning, horrifying and hilarious film. While Kubrick is all over the film, it's really Peter Sellers that holds it all together and brings it to life. The dialogue is so good and the sets so fantastically put together. The final moments are chilling in a way that managed to worry you and make you laugh out loud at the same time. Still looks amazing too.

The Sword In The Stone - Like Robin Hood, this Disney film feels largely ignored but there's lot to enjoy about it. While it is essentially one idea stretched over its running time, it has charm and invention to spare. Again, I think I like this over other Disney movies because of the lack of big musical set pieces. I actually haven't seen it in years and having been trying to get my daughter to watch it (along with Robin Hood) to no avail. It's not the most technically accomplished or even the funniest, but it's well worth 80 minutes of your time.

Here We Go Round The Mulberry Bush - A sort of 60s coming of age film. I caught it late one night and instantly liked the whole vibe about it. The fact that Barry Evans (RIP) broke the fourth wall was something I hadn't seen done too often before. The thing is drenched in flower power, free love and all that, and I think contains at least one psychedelic sequence. Evans was great as he did his best to lose his virginity, and Judy Geeson was easy on the eye. Certainly a film of its time, but an enjoyable one too. Soundtrack was pretty good If I recall correctly.

To Kill A Mocking Bird - I only saw this recently and have never read the book (wife couldn't believe that). An incredible and moving film, with a great central performance from Gregory Peck. Looking back the one thing that sticks out is the shaming scene, in which Peck's daughter Scout manages to defuse a powder keg situation without even knowing she is doing it - when the town decides they want to hang Tom Robinson. It's not always an easy film to watch but is infinitely rewarding and sadly, eye opening.

A Shot In the Dark - Easily the funniest of the Inspector Clouseau series. While Peter Sellers was better in Dr. Strangelove, I think this is his best "straight" funny role, if that makes sense. A number of scenes stand out, the nudist colony and the snooker/billards game being just two of them. I loved that he was so sure that Elke Sommers was innocent despite everything pointing to the contrary. For me, the series peak at this point as it seems they had a plot that just happened to contain funny situations. As the series went on, it became more sketch like, with a very loose plot linking a series of set pieces. The less said about the awful "made after he died" films, the better.

Carry on Cleo - Along with Carry on Henry, Cleo was the best looking of all the Carry On films, thanks to them being allowed to use abandoned sets and costumes from the big budget Anthony & Cleopatra. It was also one of the funniest and like Screaming, actually had a plot you could follow rather than being a series of sequences. I think the film benefited enormously from not having Barbara Windsor in it. Rather, Amanda Barrie made a very cute Cleopatra and the rest of the cast were filled out with regulars. Nice to see Jim Dale take the lead again but I think Kenneth Connor was the real star, as the cowardly Hengist. Kenneth Williams was great as Caesar and it was interesting to see him and Sid James share a few scenes together. Shame Joan Sims & Charles Hawtrey didn't get much of a look in. An enjoyable romp!

The Good, The Bad & The Ugly - I first saw this when I was very young and I can remember being entranced by the music. I'd never heard anything like it and still find it incredibly emotive. I loved Eastwood in it but Eli Wallach really made the picture for me. Still stands up well today, with a good numbe of memorable set pieces. The ending is still a brilliant exercise in tension - it's simply three guys, waiting to see who shoots first, but Leone knew exactly had to ratchet it right up.

The Dirty Dozen - A lot funnier and darker than I imagined it would be. Men on a mission films live or die on their cast but this one was about as good as you could get. You had the conflict and the camaraderie of the training (including the wonderful section in which they outsmart the 'enemy'). The actual mission though, saw the film change gear to become not only a great thriller, but an incredibly violent one (the killing of the people in the bunker especially so). The ending was as close to heartbreaking as such a film could get, but it was also incredibly fitting.

If.... - I remember watching this after seeing A Clockwork Orange, simply because I found McDowell an amazing actor and presence and wanted to see more of his work. I didn't get all the layers the film worked on but I remember being moved, shocked and stunned by it, especially the beating scenes and the ending. The film seemed to have a not quite right quality about it, were the lines between it all blurred. An outstanding debut for McDowell and a film that feels as relevant now as it ever did.

Carry On Doctor - This one, like Carry on Screaming, gave way to a non-Carry on team lead in the guise of Frankie Howerd. Sid James couldn't play a major role as he was meant to be on bed rest (hence 85% of his scenes actually have him in bed) so it was down to Jim Dale and Howerd to look after proceedings. What's great is that this one features almost the entire team in one capacity or another. While Joan Sims is only in a small number of scenes, her marriage to Howerd is hilarious. Kenneth Williams and Hattie Jacques were equally good, especially in the scenes after Jacques has covered for him and hopes to end up as his lover. The final section in which the patients revolt is still as funny as when I first saw it, about 30 years ago.

Scoff all you will, but my number one film of the sixties, The Love Bug (what a pun for a film which has the tenacity of pubic lice!), is indisputably the most harrowing and soul-destroying movie ever made, with its California hellscape and Beckett-inflected air of oppression and political outrage blowing away every wannabe 'rebel' film from the sixties - and beyond! - like so much fish from a tank brimming with dynamite and defective grenades. Unfortunately, the Cronenberg remake, Crash, just can't compare with the depravity of Herbie and his travelling syphilitic-cultists, tearing the screen apart with their menacing white teeth, aggressive sexuality, and fetish jump suits. Cronenberg's film has only a bland Little Tree air freshener smell to it, while TLB breathes its rank odour of semen on seat leather, piss in oil and blood on tire rubber at its audience with masturbatory glee. "Viva las apocalypse!" proclaimed the august August critic Parlow Seudenstein when he saw Herbie flip his bonnet (literally), adroitly outlining the intellectual rubicon that has consumed professional film criticism for the past forty years: is The Love Bug the greatest art film of the twentieth century, or the only film of the twentieth century worthy to be called art? Postif's gaggle hold the second view as gospel, but the Cahiers crew go no further than the first estimation - the ensuing struggle has claimed more ink and column inches than a mid-scale genocide in the Balkans. In any event, it is safe to say that when all the other intellectual fruits of our wretched epoch are rotting on the vine, the devilish image of a leering Volkswagen will remain as implanted in the human gestalt as the myths of the Greeks or the scriptures of the Hindus. "Do not ask for whom the windscreen wipers wipe, / They wipe for thee!"

I actually had Carry On Again, Doctor and Carry on Camping on the shortlist (along with Our Man Flint) I figured it was better to stick with the three out of fifteen than go for about six out of twenty. I could never actually get on with Cruising, it didn't feel like what I'd call a traditional Carry On..

I'm struggling to find any 60s' films I've seen that weren't directed by Alfred Hitchcock or Russ Meyer, or don't have 'Carry on' at the start of the name (I do love Carry on films, though). Mary Poppins and What's New Pussycat are about all I've come up with.

As expected, this is a decade in which I absolutely fail to reach 20 films for my list. Mostly that's due to not knowing enough films from the period, though a surprising number of the 'classics' of the era that I have seen not resonating with me hasn't helped. Also, not generally thinking that much of Bond movies or jingoistic war movies hasn't helped much either.

Anyway, without further ado, the list:

1. Once Upon a Time In The West

2. Le Samouraï

3. À bout de souffle Breathless (which doesn't sound nearly as good!)

4. The Day The Earth Caught Fire

5. Yojimbo

6. A Fistful Of Dollars

7. For A Few Dollars More

8. The Manchurian Candidate

9. 2001: A Space Odyssey

10. Edipo Re

As can be seen from this list, I'm one-tenth samurai (who secretly wants to be the star of a hard-boiled crime thriller); three-tenths cowboy (one-third of which wants to be the aforementioned samurai-cum-film-noir-star); one-tenth hitman, described as a samurai but actually more of a laconic murderer as might be found in a hard-boiled crime thriller; and one-tenth petty-criminal-cum-murderer who openly wants to be the star of a hard-boiled crime thriller.


On the plus side, you can probably guess what sorts of films will be appearing in my '40s list...

(The remaining four-tenths of me are a brainwashed space journalist with gender issues, obviously)

Bonnie and Clyde

The Wild Bunch

The Graduate

The Great Escape

I thought I'd seen loads of stuff of late but I've still got loads more lined up to watch which include these. I'm sure a few would have made the list had I the time to watch, indeed some might still if the voting doesn't close to soon. In rough order that I intend to watch them:

To Watch:

Where Eagles Dare

The Hustler

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid

The Day the Earth Caught Fire

Peeping Tom

2001: A Space Odyssey

To Kill A Mockingbird

The Haunting

My list isn't really a best of the 60s, it's more a favourite films that I've watched over the course of the last few weeks. About 3/4 of it is films that are new to me, though the remainder have been firm favourites for some time. That said I've not just included everything I've seen recently, indeed some have made the mentions list and others like Easy Rider aren't here at all.

1. The Jungle Book

The story is weak, the animation isn't that special yet this is not only number one, it's in my top 5 of all. Why? Well because it's brilliant! It's got just about the most perfect voice acting imaginable. Everybody fits perfectly, I really couldn't imagine anybody else as jolly Baloo or regal yet sinister villain Shere Khan.

Whilst the story isn't upto much what most certainly is is the songs and set pieces. You only have to look at my avatar for my absolute favourite moment. Yet it's one of many great bits including the Scouse vultures and their shoulders ("so what we gonna do then?"), the The Bare Necessities and ITCHING! The ending which is scary for the briefest of moments too, when the tiger turns and you see the evil it it's eyes.

Best of all it's not just me that loves it, my 5 year old niece does too. So proud when she told me it was her favourite over the likes of Meatballs and Shrek.

2. Once Upon A Time in the West

I watched this blind for the first time no more than a month ago. Sure I knew it was a Western, that it was highly regarded and rated. The sort of thing I've heard mentioned before but never paid much attention. Beyond that, nothing. Didn't even know the synopsis.

Took me, ooh, about two minutes to be utterly hooked. The first twenty or so minutes are utterly perfect, not that the rest of it is bad!

I've gone on and on endlessly in the other thread but it's a film that excited me so much I quickly wanted to see the rest of the directors work. It's the perfect marriage of music and sound effects, fitting the action and driving the story that initially caught my eye. Not only is it technically astounding but it has heart and humour, Cheyanne especially. The bad guy Frank was brilliantly horrible and despicable, Jill gorgeous enough to fully warrant sending everybody gaga. Harmonica was cool enough too.

And oh my, the ending and reveal is brilliance. I love the film so very much, it's one I'll be rewatching many, many times.

3. Cool Hand Luke

Had never even heard of this film until it was mentioned in this very thread. Looked it up, sounded interesting and the rest is history.

Found it funny, full of heart and ultimately tragic yet not sad. I think the thing that drives the film is the presence, charisma and confidence of Newman. At times I struggled with his attitude, but with his performance I never doubted his desire and belief that he was doing right.

Hell, it even educated me with that fantastic quote "What we've got here is...failure to communicate." It's delivered brilliantly in timing, that Southern drawl nails it. Fits the wider story perfectly and I know now what Guns N Roses where on about in Civil War.

4. Dr. Strangelove

Seen this a fair few times over the years but it's power most definitely remains. On one hand incredibly, almost ludicrously, funny. Yet it's simultaneously terrifying. I struggle to think of a film that has equal parts of these two things, but I think it's greatest achievement is how it makes you think.

5. The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

I think everything that I liked about Once Upon West is present in this movie, only it was tweaked to perfection in that later movie. Felt it was slightly too long and sagged a tad about 3/4 in. Was the film losing it's way? Na, you've got one of the finest endings of any film to come!

From when the cannon fires to the end of the graveyard scene I was mesmerised by the brilliance of those 15 or so minutes. It elevated a very good film to once of excellence for me. You've got Tuco running to the graveyard, the music accompanying him. The music speeds up as does he, the camera panning faster and faster as we understand the sheer hopelessness of trying to find one grave in such a large area. And that's just the start. We then have the graveyard standoff, the incredible scores tempo rises, it intensifies as the cuts from face to eyes to hands on pistols quicken. It's a simple premise, who shoots who first, but it's tension is cranked right up by all the elements the director pulls together. Entrancing.

6. The Apartment

Went flicking through Sky one night and accidently found this on TCM. In retrospect it's embarrassing that only a month ago did I find out about this brilliantly funny, sweet and touching movie. I can only imagine how controversial it was back in the day, the bosses not being the only one with dubious morals. But the lead more than makes up for letting his apartment out by being thoroughly decent and likeable. I really did warm to all concerned in this movie.

7. The Birds

Seen it before, rewatched it yesterday to check that I still liked it. I most certainly do. Like all of his films it's the suspense and craftsmanship that's most notable. I think unique to this film, and why I like it, was that it was a straight up horror with no effort to explain anything. I think I found parts of it more unintentionally funny than scary (the kids being pecked mainly), but it's kept the ability to put me on the edge of the seat when he's creeping past those evil little bastards. All of them sat on the playground is such an amazing shot that'll never leave me.

8. A Hard Days Night

Genuinely funny, full of heart and absolutely great music. Loved the credits, they're as imaginative and clever as anything else. The Clean Old Man steals the show for sure. Loved it's absurdity, thing that first comes to mind being the Beatles off the train heckling the man and then setting up and playing in said train.

9. Rosemary’s Baby

It should be ridiculously silly and trashy from it's premise, but it most definitely isn't. Grabbed my attention and I went along never quite believing that it was real, that she was imagining it. It's all resolved by the end, which again should be daft, but isn't and works. Those neighbours though, creepy!

10. The Dirty Dozen

This is another film I knew nothing about until I read this thread. In honesty I was slightly dubious when I read the synopsis, it sounded crass and whilst killing Nazi's is never a bad thing I wondered just how likeable anybody would be in the film.

Big mistake, it was brilliant and nothing like I expected. It was full of humour and was much more than a dumb shoot emup movie. When the violence does come it's all the more powerful and dark due to it's previous absence, the bunker bit especially nasty.

Ultimately it's the fact that I care about the characters that's the films greatest triumph, especially if you had preconceptions like I did.

11. Charade

Fun and very entertaining, with a very pretty Hepburn as lead. I liked how it balanced humour and light heartedness on one hand, and mixed it suspense and drama to make a very good film. It's lovely looking, especially the scenery with a unique end and a couple of great and memorable moments such as the train station.

12. Cape Fear

Much better than the remake. The baddie was much more sinister and nasty than the comic book absurdity of De Niro, the film better for it. Great music too.

13. For a Few Dollars More

Not quite as good as the other two, but still has all the elements that I liked from the others. Great ending again, not as flashy but very clever and fitting.

14. Kes

It's not a bad film, but that football scene elevates it to greatness for me. It's very sad and touching, one that I always like watching.

15. Yellow Submarine

Absurd, but hugely inventive and fun. Great music as expected.

16. Psycho

It's a very brave film that's full of remarkable bits that are always imitated and recalled. Killing off your pretty and famous lead so early? Pretty damn good for that alone, the fact that it's done so memorably doubly so. Then Hitchcock hits you over the head with that reveal. I think he must have been scaring the actors for real, they all look so genuinely terrified.

17. The Day the Earth Caught Fire

18. Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid

19. Spartacus

This one I thought I loved, but upon rewatching the other day I'm not so sure.

20. The Producers

I think I like the premise more than the film. It's the shouting that Wilder does, he started to annoy me more than humour me with his neurotic ways. I certainly remembered it more fondly. HMM, what an odd way to end a best of post.

I'm picking from a smaller pool than I have for the previous decades, so I'll only be sticking 15 movies on this (rather predictable) list. More than that and I'll probably start picking films just to make up the numbers. I've already been through this thread and added a dozen or so titles to my Lovefilm list though. Thanks rllmuk and Chosty!

02. 2001: A Space Odyssey

03. The Good, The Bad and the Ugly

The first decade where I struggle to even recognise most of the films listed, let alone consider whether I found them enjoyable enough to list, I could probably fill out a top 20 if I ever get around to watching most of the famous rated ones at some point (and 14 is only there really to stop it being 13 films listed :P, though it is a bit of an enduring entertaining classic family film really).

Edit: Completely forgot that Seijun Suzuki's flick was from the 60s, suppose it's what happens when you scroll through page after page of film listings on IMDB, you don't necessarily read every entry :blush:
