The Greatest Years in Film History: 1969

Editors Award Winner
Editor's Award Winner

This quiz has received an Editor's Award for excellent content. Only the most unique and well written quizzes are eligible for this award.

TheGreatestYearsinFilmHistory1969 Photo There are memorable films, there are film eras that evoke heights for particular genres, and rarely, there are single years that elicit an amazing body of work in themselves and stand out to lovers of film of all ages.

1969 was one of those years, coming as it did at the end of the decade that marked the decline of the Hollywood studio system and the advent of independent, underground cinema. This series, which will highlight years such as 1939, 1942, 1951, 1976 and more recent years, will include global cinema and not just the work of US filmmakers.

So, get your organic popcorn and low-fat butter, grab an iced green tea and snuggle next to your significant other, we're going to the movies!

NOTE: This is a reading quiz, not a fast one --for all you speed demon quiz takers.

Sources include Wikipedia, IMDB,, Films101 and other web sites, and publications such as Premiere, JumpCut, Radical America and Cineaste. Special thanks to Peter Biskind (Seeing is Believing: How Hollywood Taught Us to Stop Worrying and Love the Fifties,1983) and J. Hoberman (Village Voice) for their critical writings and reviews and the insights of my colleagues in the Angry Arts Film Collective.
