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.
