It takes a film lover to name these Sixties summer blockbusters by their movie posters alone

From Disney to Bond, these all remain classics.

Some claim that Jaws invented the summer blockbuster. Well, perhaps it kicked off the big popcorn movie craze, but there were certainly massive summer movies before 1975.

The smash Sixties movies below all came out in the summer months — and all went on to become some of the biggest films of the year, if not all time.

You got 12 out of 14
Way to go, movie buff! There's no cash prize, but if there were, it would be one dollar. Because that's all you needed to buy all these concessions in the 1960s — and a ticket!
Missed #8 and #11.
