Which 1960s movie is shown in this screenshot?
Paul Newman plays a stagecoach passenger who's snubbed by his fellow passengers because he was raised by Indians. Their opinion changes when he becomes their only hope, when the coach is beset by outlaws.
The iconic original stars John Wayne as drunken U.S. Marshal Rooster Cogburn, one of his most emotionally complex roles. The remake got Oscar love, but for Western purists nothing can match the Duke's original.
Gregory Peck played Atticus Finch in this career-making role. While the sequel to the book cast Atticus as a closet racist, in this film he's a paladin for the cause of racial equality and justice for all.
Here's something you probably didn't know: The book on which the movie was based was penned by none other than the Father of Bond himself, Ian Fleming. I guess after you design a car with missile launchers, making one that flies isn't such a stretch.
"Mrs. Robinson, you're trying to seduce me." Is there a more iconic quote in dramatic movie history? Mike Nichols won the Oscar for best director for this movie, which launched Dustin Hoffman's career.
This was one of stop-motion monster master Ray Harryhausen's masterpieces. For the time, the special effects were amazing. There are tons of small continuity errors in the film, which had a whopping (for the time) million-dollar budget, but it's tremendous fun.
This Sergio Leone classic western was elevated by having Clint Eastwood (so young!) and Lee Van Cleef heading the cast. There are many iconic shots from the movie, most notably the one of Eastwood in a dingy serape, hat askew with a cigarette dangling from his lip.
Based on "Pygmalion," this comedic classic features Rex Harrison and Audrey Hepburn at the height of her power. The plot seems horridly misogynistic in today's society, but for its time this was pretty hilarious stuff.
You might get a hint of Tarantino's "Inglourious Basterds" here, and you wouldn't be too far off. In this case, a squad of a dozen hardened criminals (murderers) are trained to go on an assassination spree of the Nazi high command.
Sergio Leone is at it again, this time with Henry Fonda and Claudia Cardinale leading his Western cast. A widow hiding from an assassin hired by the railroad needs a harmonica-playing gunslinger's help to escape. Note: At no point is the harmonica used as a weapon.
Don't beat yourself up if you don't remember this movie. There's a silly plot about a stolen scroll and mysterious strangers, seemingly spontaneous dance numbers and bikinis for absolutely no reason. I'm sure it'll become a Netflix series soon.
While Vladimir Nabokov's original book is fairly dark, this movie takes a far different angle. It's played as a black comedy, which somehow makes the concept of an old man falling in love with a young girl even more creepy.
Based on an Akira Kurosawa classic, this ultimate Western has influenced hundreds of other films. A group of gunslingers from disparate backgrounds unite to defend innocent townsfolk from encroaching evil.
The most talented frenemies in Hollywood history, Bette Davis and Joan Crawford, own the screen and chew the scenery in this one. They play sisters who've been acting rivals their whole lives, until one is confined in a wheelchair and left to the mercy of the other one.
To say this movie made waves when it came out is to put it mildly. It garnered an "X" rating and the friendship between Jon Voight and Dustin Hoffman's characters was ... controversial, to say the least.
This is one of the most polarizing science fiction movies ever made. While most aficionados praise it for groundbreaking special effects, a unique plot and the use of the soundtrack, more modern sci-fi fans decry it as slow and ponderous. It does have a serious lack of explosions and laser cannon battles, but I've always loved it.
In the annals of movie spectacles, few productions come close to touching "Cleopatra" for wretched excess. It won four Oscars, all in the production categories, because there simply wasn't another movie that garish on the slate.
What is it about the tale of Norman Bates that has so embedded itself in the American psyche? There have been dozens of remakes, re-imaginings, sequels and prequels since the original. Hitchcock's shower scene is still one of the classic jump-scares of all time.
Bette Davis chews more scenery as an aging Southern belle who's concealing a dark secret from her past. She might or might not have brutally murdered her married lover decades in the past, but the issue will soon come to a head, thanks to a mysterious visitor.
Divorce was still something of a taboo subject in the early '60s, especially when it came to kids' movies. This one, with Hayley Mills playing a dual role as teenage twin sisters, was a Judy Blume-level course in comic compensation, as the sisters scheme to get their divorced folks back together.
With Jimmy Stewart and John Wayne topping the list, there was surely no lack of gravitas on the cast. Lee Marvin plays the title character, a brutal outlaw who terrorizes a town in a territory seeking statehood.
Here's the original that created the empire, with Charlton Heston as the lost astronaut and Roddy McDowall as the helpful ape. The last scene, with Heston stumbling across the Statue of Liberty on the beach, is a complete classic.
Here we have Paul Newman and Robert Redford, two of the all-time biggest names in the movie business, in their greatest movie together. To this day, "Let's go to Bolivia!" is a favorite tagline when things aren't going well.
Here it is, folks! By many critics' estimations, this is the worst movie ever made. Even the sharp-tongued savants of "Mystery Science Theater 3000" ran out of jokes about 2/3 of the way through the movie.
These days, when a Shakespeare adaptation hits the screen, it's usually studded with big-name stars trying to get a little Bard cred on their resumes. This one, my favorite filmed version of the play, had young Olivia Hussey and Michael York and not a lot else. Franco Zeffirelli's direction, though, made it a masterpiece.
Robert Mitchum plays a bad-guy role as a released convict who returns to terrorize the man who put him behind bars. Honestly, Robert DeNiro does a better job in the remake, but this one's worth seeing.
This may be the most British of the live-action Disney movies of the '60s and '70s. Julie Andrews and her magic umbrella became an iconic character almost immediately, and there's a remake in the works for late 2018.
Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper play the leads in this most iconic of counterculture movies. As hippies Wyatt and Billy, they sell some pot, stash the money and take off on their motorcycles across the country, meeting slices of life along the way.
Russell Crowe in "Gladiator" owes a huge debt to Kirk Douglas in this movie. The plot is very similar, and Douglas' domination of the screen is rivaled only by Crowe in full throat, screaming, "Are you not entertained?"
When I go out on the porch to sip my morning coffee and discover I've forgotten to fill the birdfeeder, this movie always comes to mind. Not recommended viewing for ornithologists or those living in coastal areas where lots of birds congregate.
If there's one thing we've learned in the movies, it's that you don't ever want to make Clint Eastwood angry. In this one, he plays a man wrongfully lynched and left for dead, who returns as a lawman looking for revenge.
