6 from the '60s Blogathon for National Classic Movie Day

To celebrate National Classic Movie Day on May 16th, we are hosting the 6 from the '60s Blogathon. Per its title, the goal is for each participant to list his or her six favorite films from the 1960s and explain why they deserve such an honor!

The 1960s was a one of the great decades for movies, spanning the transition from the Golden Age of Hollywood to a new era filled with young auteurs (e.g., Kubrick, Frankenheimer, Peckinpah), rising stars (e.g., Warren Beatty, Steve McQueen, Faye Dunaway), and influential international filmmakers (e.g., Truffaut, Godard, Fellini). It featured beloved films like To Kill a Mockingbird, cult movies like Point Blank, blockbusters like The Great Escape, and ground-breaking movies like Bonnie and Clyde. It also marked the debut of James Bond on the big screen and the birth of Spaghetti Westerns.

If you don't have a blog and still want to participate, you can list your six favorite 1960s films on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and other social media on National Classic Movie Day on May 16th.

If you want to participate on May 16th, please list your blog and its web address in the comments below. You can also e-mail that information to rick@classicfilmtvcafe.com. When you publish your six picks from the '60s, please include a link back to this post. Be sure to read our blogathon guidelines, too!
