7 Movies That Turned 50 in 2017
The year was 1967, Pringles were first introduced to the world, Rolling Stone Magazine began publication and The Beatles ruled the airwaves. Throughout the years there hasn’t been a lot that can withstand the test of time…aside from Meryl Streep’s talent of course. Sure, many do come and go in our minds but the truly classic films never die. Here’s to these amazing films that turned 50 in 2017!
Good old 1967, coined “the summer of love” and rightfully so for Dustin Hoffman, Anne Bancroft, and Katharine Ross in the hit film The Graduate, which won countless awards including an Oscar for Best Director for Mike Nichols and quite a few Golden Globes for the rest of the cast.
Bonnie & Clyde
If looks could kill it would definitely be the stylish combo of Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty. The crime drama was nominated for an astounding 10 Oscars and took home two.
Barefoot in The Park
This classic romantic comedy written by Neil Simon stars Robert Redford and Jane Fonda as a recently married couple. This uptight personality meets the free spirit combo has become one of our favorite formulas for romantic comedies throughout the years and this 1967 classic definitely lives up to the laughs.
How do you make money off making something horrible? No this isn’t an autobiography of Nicolas Cage’s career choices. Producers Max Bialystock (Zero Mostel) and Leo Bloom (Gene Wilder) make money by concocting a plan to produce a sure-fire flop in this 1967 classic The Producers.
The horrors of your commute in a whole different sense, Artie Connors (Martin Sheen) and Joe Ferrone (Tony Musante) hold the passengers of a New York City subway car hostage in this 1967 American neo-noir film written by Nicholas E. Baehr.
Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner
This 1967 comedy/drama Starring Katherine Hepburn and Sidney Poitier won 2 Oscars, this film tackled the very hot topic of interracial relationships (which many would say is still relevant in today’s age).
The Jungle Book
Nominated for 1 Oscar, this 1967 animated film is a timeless Disney classic that captures the essence of the changes that come with having to grow up and face your fears.
