1960s Movie Quiz Questions

This 1960s movie quiz has 20 questions about classic films from the sixties, actors, actresses, directors, film awards, and more!

Most notable in the sixties was the evolution of spy movies that became more sophisticated with high tech and moved beyond the Cold War settings. The James Bond films in the mid-sixties had great success and impact. Similarly, the movies Ocean’s Eleven (1960), Topkapi (1964), and The Thomas Crown Affair (1968) were set on the international stage and included hi-tech gadgets.

The sixties also saw great historical dramas like Ben-Hur, Cleopatra, Lawrence of Arabia, The Longest Day, Spartacus, and A Man for All Seasons.

Alfred Hitchcock continued to extend the psychological horror genre with films like Psycho and The Birds.

Musicals were also extremely popular in the 1960s and brought home many Oscars. West Side Story got ten Oscars and My Fair Lady eight. The British musical “Oliver!” dominated the 41st Academy Awards with ten nominations and five wins. Mary Poppins had 13 nominations and five wins. And let us not forget Sound of Music, the highest-grossing movie of all time in 1966.

The sixties also brought us other classics like Kubrick’s Dr. Strangelove, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly with Clint Eastwood, the epic 2001: A Space Odyssey, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Easy Rider, and The Graduate.
