So, when we talk about 1960’s movies, there is definitely an aspect of Romanticism in the air, since that was a genre that endures in those times as a fundamental line of logic through most of the films plots.
Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961)
When we think about iconic movies from the 60’s, Breakfast at Tiffany’s is probably the top-of-mind answer that comes up.
This is a story about Holly Golightly (who was brilliantly played by Audrey Hepburn) and how determined she is with the thought of marrying a millionaire.
Lost in her innocence, ambition and naive thoughts, every day, Holly as her breakfast at Tiffany’s, a high-end jewelry shop, to try and get away from her problems.
Those problems seem to go away when Holly meets Paul Varjak, a young writer that is really into her and even becomes her neighbor.
Holly is also really fond of Paul, although she struggles with the fact that Paul cannot provide the lifestyle that Holly is hoping for in her life.
The Sound of Music (1965)
This film classic tells us the story of an Austrian woman that, in the late 1930’s is struggling to fulfill her desires of becoming a nun in a convent there.
After quitting that dream, Maria (masterfully played y the legendary Julie Andrews) takes on a challenge of becoming the governess in a house that has seven children, fathered by a widowed Captain.
This movie was very successful since it won the Oscar for Best Movie and the one for Best Director.
My Fair Lady (1964)
Originally an incredibly successful Broadway Play, My Fair Lady was adapted to the big screen in 1964, and that film was also a major success!
This is the story of a Phonetics Professor that loses a bet and has to turn Eliza Doolittle (a florist) into a proper, classy lady.
This movie also won the Academy Award for best film and for Best Actor, among others!
Bonnie and Clyde (1967)
This wonderfully made film epic tells the story of Bonnie Parker and her falling in love and accompanying Clyde Barrow. Together, they begin a life of crime, stealing cars and robbing banks (so 1967, right?!) and being chased by the police through the whole country.
Among many awards that the film has won, the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress and the British Academy Award (BAFTA) for Best Starting-out Actor are included.
The Graduate (1967)
Obviously, the movie that introduced us to Dustin Hoffman (one of the greatest actors of all time) has to be included.
Benjamin (Dustin Hoffman) has just graduated from college and, coming home one day is surprised by Mrs. Robinson, a family friend that is trying to seduce him.
That summer romance is all fun and games until Benjamin falls in love with Mrs. Robinson’s daughter.
