Events

Hundreds of full-length films were produced during the 1960s.

The decade is known for being prominent in historical drama, psychological horror, and comedy, as well as the sub-genres of spy film, sword and sandal, and spaghetti westerns, all peaking during this decade.

  • Beyond the trenchcoat and film noir, spy films expanded with worldly settings and hi-tech gadgets, such as the James Bond films Dr. No (1962) or Goldfinger (1964) and Thunderball (1965). This Spy mania extended throughout the world with many countries notable Italy and Spain producing many of their own fantastical spy movies.

Beginning in the middle of the decade due to the start of the cultural revolution and the abolishion of the Hays Code, films became increasingly experimental and daring and were taking shape of what was to define the 1970s.
