1960s in Film

As would be expected and hopefully forgivable, I have seen fewer films from the decade of the Sixties than others that have come after I was old enough to catch films in their first run. Somehow though, I have seen more of what conventional wisdom regards as great in the decade than the Seventies or even to a degree the Eighties. Maybe that is because time ensures that the good survives while the fluff fades. Or, maybe I just agree more with the artistic sensibilities of the Sixties than the Seventies. In either case, this list may be a bit conventional:
