1960s movies – top 25

This list is taken from Digital Dream Door’s list of 100 best movies from the 1960s. These are only the first 25. I really didn’t do so well this time.

Here are my other top 25 lists:

Silent :: 1930s :: 1940s :: 1950s :: 1960s :: 1970s :: 1980s :: 1990s :: 2000s

Underlined means I’ve seen it. Blue text means I haven’t. A ♣ means I want to see it.
