For me it's Planet of the Apes.
The music, the make up, the cinematography and the ending, the first time u c it, put it all together and I think it's one of the best movies ever made.

So many great movies in those days. "Hard Day's Night" and "Rosemary's Baby" are two I love. I'm surprised "Bonnie and Clyde" and "The Boston Strangler" aren't there. "In Cold Blood" is another masterpiece, IMO. No comic book franchises in those days.

West Side Story was my pick - that film/story has it all!

"Mad, Mad World" (even the *title* is too long!) is three hours of nasty, greedy people yelling and generally being despicable. It's loud and angry but not funny. Conversely, "Mary Poppins" has a great score, wonderful animation and comedy, and a lovely lesson about parenting -- told with a spoonful of sugar.

The reason why Mad mad mad mad world was so popular is that it was a Cinerama film, you watched it on 3 screens. Totally lost on any viewers who never saw it in the theaters. Plus it had every star from the 40s and 50s in it. And it was very funny.
Mary Poppins was a stuck up prim nanny manipulating the parents and letting the kids get away with a punch of obnoxious stuff.

Well they left out Spartacus, Inherent The Wind and Judgement At Nuremberg. Then They sent my Psycho to the cleaners whats one gonna do.

"Inherit the Wind," is excellent, and a worthy choice I did not think of.

It's A Mad Mad Mad Mad World is my favorite comedy film period and I'm a millennial. Out of respect for Stanley Kramer (you know him for mostly directing dramas), who produced and directed this great film and who also considered adding a fifth "Mad" to the title before deciding it was redundant but later regretting it, I shall forever call it, "It's A Mad Mad Mad Mad MAD World."

Well if the world was not mad it sure is MAD now.
Good info and a great laugh

If you're appreciating production value, then it has to be it's a Mad (etc.) World!

The other one is a sentimental favorite. No worries! Something for everyone!!

Sometimes the best movie does not win. The reasons are many. We have two left and both are great. One gives people a good feeling with not many problems in the story. Enjoyed by many. What's there to not like. The other is downright funny with people having one goal. Get to the secret spot and collect the mullah. An all-star cast all going insane at one point as greed stacks up. Fun to follow such characters through out the movie. One can Crack A Rib laughing at such insanity. So if you can't beat em, join em. My vote now goes to It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World. Mary Poppins---Game on.

There were so many aspects to the 60 that no one movie can represent the entire decade. Certainly neither of the 2 final choices.
harlow1313 55 months ago
Sorry, no. The correct choice to represent the decade is "Easy Rider."

Okay just to give a little tidbit of a Psycho scene. I am skipping the shower scene for fear of a fainting spells by some. This is near the end and find the truth about mother. Never the less once you seen it never forgetting. Not only finding the 10 year departed Mrs Bates but the music eerily brings it to a crescendo of fear. Happy that it made it to the semi final

The original Mary Poppins & the newer version were both AWESOME! Just saying :)

Woe is me. Can't even beat Mary Poppins. Two hours after noon my time the 300 billion California crowd pops in and shoves my Psycho deeper into the bottomless pit and Sound of Music shoots to the top. I wonder if I should be like Beetlejuice and tote around neon signs that flash Psycho, Psycho, Psycho just say the word. Oh well, should've, would've, could've but NO soup for me .

I think you've re-emerged under a new psyudonym. Did you previous avatar begin with a B?

(I recognized the style of your writing!) 😉😉
texasluva Pacificsun 55 months ago
No. $10! Actually my name is Alan. I do not think I ever used a B. Unless of course I am the male counterpart to Three Faces of Eve or an alter ego. I like it though>>>re-emerged
Pacificsun texasluva 55 months ago
Fair enough, still enjoy reading your comments though! Thanks!!
texasluva Pacificsun 55 months ago
Thank you. If I ever re-emerged as good as your postings.... I would be more then just a 3 year old sitting on a beach straddling the sand. With my Sombrero to keep the Pacific sun from scorching my lily white face and hopefully scaring off the bullies. Or I'd have to kick sand in their faces and hope for the best. Your posts are just way too good. More then sound reasoning.

I picked The Sound of Music, which got the most votes.
