Movie History – Quintessential Movies of the 1960s

Sure, you could buy a fedora and a gray flannel suit, light up a Lucky Strike at your next business meeting, and start keeping a fully stocked bar at your cubicle but there are easier ways to get your fix of 1960s culture between airings of Mad Men. Look no further than these quintessential movies of the era, selected by Filmsite.org’s Tim Dirks. Whether it’s bad behavior in the corporate boys club (The Apartment), high-society carousing in New York City (Breakfast at Tiffany’s), or Freudian dilemmas of Hitchcockian scope (Marnie), these iconic ’60s movies deliver the goods and then some. (One of them even served as the inspiration for a Sterling Cooper ad campaign: Bye Bye Birdie.) Want to see what else made the list?
