Good Movies 1967



The Graduate 1967The Graduate - Simon and Garfunkel fan Mike Nichols wins the Oscar for direction and Dustin Hoffman becomes a star. Also starring Anne Bancroft, Katharine Ross and William Daniels. The movie manages to make funny a young man getting caught having sex with his girlfriend's mother. Warren Beatty and Burt Ward (Robin) turned down the part of Ben. Marilyn Monroe was cast years earlier to play Mrs. Robinson, after her untimely death Doris Day was approached and turned the part down. At the time of filming Hoffman playing the young Ben turned 30 and Bancroft the Mother was only 36. The leg you see in the picture is that of Linda Grey who went on to star in the TV show Dallas.



bonnnie and clyde 1967Bonnie and Clyde


"We rob banks."


Directed by Arthur Penn and starring Warren Beatty, Faye Dunaway, Michael J. Pollard, Gene Hackman and Estelle Parsons who won an academy award. Bonnie and Clyde is considered the first of the American New Wave. French director François Truffaut, king of the new wave style was expected to direct but finally passed. Warner Bros. thought the movie was so bad they opted to give producer Warren Beatty 40% rather than pay him up front. The movie featured what was to come, comedic killing, gratuitous violence, and the first movie to use squibs, red paint filled explosive charges underneath clothing. As you may have guessed the critics hated it and the audiences loved it.


cool hand luke 1967

Cool Hand Luke - Directed by Stuart Rosenberg and starring Paul Newman, George Kennedy who won an academy Award and Strother Martin. On the surface the movie depicts the horror of prisons in the South, but it also portrays an anti-authoritarian hero who bucks the system and like Christ, is killed for it. Christian imagery permeates the cinematography. Cool Hand Luke is the forerunner of Randle McMurphy played by Jack Nicholson in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. The movie is best remembered for the scene where Luke eats 50 hard boiled eggs and of course the quote...

"What we've got here, is a failure to communicate."

20th century fox 1967

As was the case with The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour making a cultural foray into the old school television industry, so was the case with the Oscar fight of 1967. The old school was led by the big studios, Katherine Hepburn, Spencer Tracy and a foul bigoted drunken Rex Harrison who tried to horse the awful Dr. Doolitle and the dated Guess Who's Coming to Dinner into the Best Picture slot. On the other side Mike Nichols, Warren Beatty, Dustin Hoffman and others with a streak of independence fought back with The Graduate and Bonnie and Clyde. Adding to the issue Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated days before the Oscar ceremonies. To placate both sides, In the Heat of the Night was chosen as it had a foot in each camp. Though this was in inroad into the new culture taking over Hollywood, the fight went on for years before the big studios passed and we all won a far greater library of different kinds of movies. An Oscar for the Ages

Best Foreign Language Film:

Closely Watched Trains (Ostre sledované vlaky)


closely watched trains 1967


Closely Watched Trains is a coming-of-age story about a boy working at a Czechoslovakian train station under NAZI occupation during World War II. It is a somewhat lighter take of how individuals deal with a murderous occupation in the 1965 surreal Czechoslovakian movie Shop on Main street. Chancing upon both of these gems on TMC I found them to be the best sub-titled movies I have ever seen.



Top Box Office 1967



Casino Royale - A slapstick star studded spoof on the James Bond spy movies. Directed by five directors including John Huston and starring David Niven, Peter Sellers, Ursula Andress, Orson Welles, Woody Allen, Barbara Bouchet, Deborah Kerr, Jacqueline Bisset, John Huston, William Holden and Charles Boyer.



dirty dozen 1967

The Dirty Dozen -
Directed by Robert Aldrich this World War II action movie pits the often mindless authoritariansim of the military as odds with individualism poorly disguised with the Vietnam War in mind. On the authority side was Robert Ryan as the horrific by the book Colonel, Lee Marvin as the commander and Ernest Borgnine as the General with feet in both camps. Stars were made of John Cassavetes who played the mean gangster, Telly Savalas who stole the show as Maggot the monstrous religious fanatic, troubled ex-officer Charles Bronson and in the Black Panther roll football star Jim Brown. Well known big man actor Clint Walker played the American Indian and we first meet Donald Sutherland as Pinkley.

Sixties Pizzazz


The idea behind this project is to present the Sixties in an interesting manner with as much audio and visual content as we could manage without slowing things down too much.


Unlike most Sixties websites that are a hodgepodge of decade wide information, we approached this project year by year. WIth each year of the Sixties including categories in history, television, movies, music, sports, books, comedy, technology and toys.

Beyond the nostalgia and retro feel for those who lived through the time, it is also designed to attract the younger crowd.


We have enjoyed some success in that endeavor as this webiste has become quite popular with teachers who use Sixties Pizzazz to get their Middle and High school students interested in our historic and cultural past by assigning projects and papers to this and our other PIZZAZZ websites.


These websites are safe for Middle school and above.


Other Pizzazz Sites


Sixties Pizzazz is part of a larger procress still under construction. It includes Fifties Pizass, Seventies Pizzazz, and the still beta of Eighties Pizzazz. They all are similar in our effort to make recent history fun and intersting for the next generation.
