|| Travel back in time,
through the magic of the movies, with this collection of titles that should
revive a few of your local fleapit back row memories. If you are younger,
hopefully it will give you a flavour of what the Sixties were like, both
here and in the U.S.A., in terms of music and various cultures, but primarily
Pop and Youth. As ever, it's a purely arbitrary selection with a lot of
my personal favourites and, of course, I'd be happy to hear from you with
suggestions as to any other movies that you think should be here. The general
criteria used for selection is: Films featuring Sixties cultures in the
U.K. and U.S.A.; Documentaries or story lines about pop and rock music,
films with pop and rock music featured and/or in the soundtrack and films
with pop and rock stars appearing in them in acting roles. Many 'You Tube'
links are provided, for interest and convenience, but may have been deleted
since this page was created. Please advise if this is the case.
The presentation format used is: Title
(plus alternative or U.S.A. titles); Production
and/or Distribution Company (if known), Director
(if known); Cast List and Storyline
(and/or artists appearing, also if known).
The films are sorted by 'year' only and there may be some dispute here as
it depends on whether it was the production year, U.K. release year or U.S.
release year. I can't say which for sure, but they're pretty close. Please
click on a year to view and, where available, click on the thumbnail to
