I can count on *one* hand how many movies of the 1960’s were worth my time! First being, and will continue to be, “Splendor in the Grass”. I could relate to most of the movie. I hated everything about the 1960’s from the movies, the music, the clothing, the degenerate culture, etc.

reply

Not even:

To Kill A Mockingbird
Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
Dr Zhivago
West Side Story
The Music Man
The Sound of Music
Lawrence of Arabia
My Fair Lady
Breakfast At Tiffany's
Mary Poppins
Funny Girl
Romeo and Juliet
A Man for All Seasons
Planet of the Apes??

reply

Dr Zhivago
Lawrence of Arabia
Mary Poppins

That’s 4 so far...counting Splendor in the Grass as numero uno.

Could not stand Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Funny Girl, West Side Story, Midnight Cowboy, My Fair Lady
I did not like Audrey Hepburn.
The rest were tolerable.

You don't like Audrey Hepburn? 😱

reply

No, I didn’t. I can see you are shocked. What can I say other than she wasn’t my cup of tea? 😔 There was a poster on here who loved Miss Hepburn to the point of using the character’s name (something Go Lightly) as her screen ID. Some of y’all were discussing BAT which got me to thinking. Maybe now that I’m older and wiser, many decades wiser, I should give the movie another look. Oh, good grief! I couldn’t wait for it to end! It confirmed my dislike from many moons ago. The *only* good thing about the movie was George Peppard! 😍

reply

It was HollyGoLightly. I wonder what happened to her? Maybe she's still around, just not posting on GD.

Well, you can give it a try now and see what you think. It's hard for me to imagine wishing it was over, although the part with Cat was 😭. To me Audrey Hepburn is the epitome of elegance, charm, and grace, plus she's funny. Did you ever see Wait Until Dark? She gives a great dramatic performance in that. But, if she's just not your cup of tea, then she isn't.

reply

Yes, I’ve seen Wait Until Dark twice. This one is a go due to being a thriller (not a horror) and she was excellent in playing a blind woman.

The part she played of Holly GoLightly definitely got on my nerves!

Judgment at Nuremberg (1961)

reply

I agree, Judgment at Nuremberg was a good one, but I didn’t see it until years later. I was older and wiser and understood the profound depth of the movie. In ‘61 I was barely graduating high school or had graduated. I was still in mourning over the guy who left me, so a movie dealing with the horrors of the Holocaust was, sad to say, not in my line of sight.
