The 1960s brought us James Bond, some of the greatest Disney classics, musicals and westerns at their height, and dozens of other incredible films. These are our picks for the best 1960s films.
What’s on the Best 1960s Films timeline?
This timeline assembles all of the best movies from the 1960s. These include all the winners of the Best Picture Oscar, as well as others noted for their critical reception, financial success, and lasting status.
The 1960s is often considered a golden age of Hollywood (though I would contend this fact), with genres like the Musical and the Western reaching their heights. Disney and other notable companies also reached new heights. And while it would be another decade before genres like fantasy and science fiction would be overhauled, this decade did bring us such classics as 2001: A Space Odyssey and Planet of the Apes.
We hope you enjoy this dive into film history. Film historians should enjoy this compilation of influential, popular, and critically acclaimed films. Enjoy!
