Favorite Movies: 1960s Edition

I thought it would be fun to choose 10 films from each decade and show you my favorite. For the 1980s, 1990s, 2000s, and 2010s I chose one movie per year, but the previous decades made that harder for me when some years I liked several movies and some years I didn’t like any. See my 1970 picks here.

Pollyanna (1960) – I used to love this movie as a kid and I loved how optimistic and happy Pollyanna always tried to be!

Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961) -Classic Audrey Hepburn, who I love, though this is my least favorite of the movies of hers I own.

The Parent Trap (1961) -when I think of The Parent Trap, this is the version I think of – not the Linsay Lohan version from the 90s.

To Kill a Mockingbird (1962) – The book is one of my favorites, and I remember watching this film in my junior year lit class after we read the book and discussing the book versus the film and how it all made us feel. The biggest takeaway for me was how perfect Gregory Peck was as Atticus.

Sword in the Stone (1963) – I loved this Disney movie about Arthur and Merlin. I feel like it is often forgotten, but I loved it – especially when Merlin turned them into squirrels and fish!

Marry Poppins (1964) – Favorite movie ever. So much so, that I wanted to name my sister Rum Punch when she was born.

My Fair Lady (1964) – Of course, a classic Audrey Hepbrun movie and a musical.

The Sound of Music (1965) – Of course another musical starring the woman who I wanted to be friends with and for her to be my grandma – Julie Andrews. I adore Julie Andrews and find her so joyful in this movie.

Camelot (1967) – My dad’s second favorite musical behind Brigadoon. He was in both of them in local productions and I used to love listening to my dad sing a long to Camelot!

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (1968) – I used to really enjoy this movie and the whimsy of the ideas in it. I thought so many of the characters were awful and mean, but the ones who were good were so good and I just loved it. I got this in an Easter basket one year and we watched it often.
