Film and Stage

Just as with reading, and like many people, I have a bottomless appetite for movies. So these are more a sampling rather than a list of favorites:

Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner
The Russians Are Coming, The Russians Are Coming

These three films touch upon three major influences of that decade: war, civil rights, and the cold war. As a child of the 60’s, I didn’t fully understand them when they were first released, but have seen them many times since. Although classic films, these three are so very obviously of the 60’s. Nothing wrong with that, but distinctly different than the 50’s and 70’s.
