Nancy: A Life in Movies
1961 – The Guns of Navarone
Best war movie and Gregory Peck is so fine.
1962 – The Manchurian Candidate
Scariest mother of all time and the art direction of the dream sequences is stunning.
1963 – The Great Escape
Best ensemble of all time. Steve McQueen on a motorcycle.
1964 – Zulu
My favorite movie of all time. I love the part where the Welshmen sing in response to the Zulus.
1965 – What’s New Pussycat?
Who wouldn’t fall in love with Peter O’Toole after this?!
1966 – The Good, The Bad and the Ugly
The greatest of the Spaghetti Westerns.
1967 – The Dirty Dozen
I love Lee Marvin in this.
1968 – Hang ‘Em High
Changed my life, as it was the first Clint Eastwood movie I ever saw.
1969 – Midnight Cowboy
It’s hard to explain what an impact this movie made on films if you weren’t alive at the time. A real game changer.
1970 – Patton
I wish I were Patton.
