2017 saw some classic films celebrating their golden anniversaries. Apart from contributing to the cinematic revolutions, these films, which were released 50 years back in 1967, have gone on to become symbols of a bygone era which we look back with awe. Its time for us to look back into 1967 to see which ten films made a name for themselves in the history books. So, here’s presenting 10 legendary films that turns 50 in 2017.
- Thoroughly Modern Millie
We start our list with musical romcom film Thoroughly Modern Millie at number 10. Revolving around the mad adventures of a naïve young woman after she decides to marry her wealthy boss, this classic film was nominated for seven Academy awards, winning one, for Best Original Score. Starring Julie Andrews, Carol Channing, Mary Tyler Moore, James Fox, John Gavin and Beatrice Lillie; the film was directed by George Roy Hill and was released on March 21, 1967. It even inspired a successful stage musical of the same name in 2000. A light-hearted film, this one probably doesn’t seem like the obvious choice for representing 1967, but over the years, it has cemented its position in history books and is firmly sitting there with pride and love.
