1967 was such a watershed year that hasta rank among Hollywood's greatest, so choosing any auspicious entries from such a Niagara-esque overflowing-fall-of-fabulous films is dang durn difficult ... which is why we'll launch the cinematic festivities with this opening One-Two power punch:



There are at least TWO other seminally-significant mo'om pitchers but we'll matrix magnanimous and leave those - plus others - for others to offer wink



O, and a'course, how couldst we even forget to remember

cool

'67 was certainly a great year for movies starting with:
Bonnie And Clyde
In The Heat of the Night
Point Blank
The Graduate
In Cold Blood
Dance of the Vampires
The Dirty Dozen
Cool Hand Luke
How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying
Hombre


Still, the greatest year other than '39 is . . .

Thank you Neotrinity...

This has been AN ACTUAL NIGHTMARE to narrow it down to my five titles list... mad

Never happened so far...


So, my 5 favourite films from 1967, not including the obvious out-of-competition status for Wiseman's TITICUT FOLLIES and Tati's PLAYTIME are :


IN COLD BLOOD
OUR MOTHER'S HOUSE
POINT BLANK
TWO FOR THE ROAD
UP THE DOWN STAIRCASE

Incredible!

Incredible!


I like "Bonnie and Clyde" and admire its sheer technique. But its (admittedly ironic) glorification of thugs - which has been imitated ad nauseum ever since - prevents me from admiring B&C as a whole.

Actually, 'gene, this was one of those two 'seminally-significant' films we mentioned at the outset that we somehow assumed would automatically make the first call list and which we wanted someone else to offer so as not to suck up all the cinematic air in the cyber room and deprive them of the pleasure.

As to that, if you wanna scope just how intense the affectionary angst this flick still engenders and elicits, there was a whale (not James wink) of a thread devoted to it a few years ago - [ 'Beatty and Penn's BONNIE AND CLYDE (1967)' ] - ya might wanna search for and dive into. Mind you, it's far from the be-all and end-all of everything you ever wanted to know about it but we will promise you this, pally: you sure ain't gonna be bored! big grin

I guess you had to be there smile

Earlier films like You Only Live Once and Gun Crazy and They Live By Night and later,
Thieves Like Us attempted the same scenario to varying degrees of success.

I was getting ready to post a "Best/Favorite Films of 1967" thread when I remembered this one from a couple of months ago. So all I needed to do was make a few additions to my existing post.

Anyone else have comments on this significant film year?

Good point. I'm about to watch B&C again soon, and will view it with more of a "how does this work as a singular work of film art?" perspective. smile

And while it resolutely remains one of Hollywood's greatest fairy tales ever (hell, El Sid was so dang perfect wee woulda married him!)



it's still enormously entertaining, calculatingly clever, rather (in its conventional couching) main-stream radical in its way
but well worth absorbing - and there couldn't have been a more touching cinematic farewell for smile Tracy & Hepburn smile.
