ENTER! TV/Media Av Contest: 1960s

This week's contest is about the classic movies of the 1960s: the best and/or most notable films of a very tumultuous decade. However, just to make it a bit more difficult, NO SCIFI OR FANTASY films will be allowed (so no 2001 or Planet of the Apes, sorry). I will however, allow "normal" (no scifi elements) horror (Psycho). Movies only, please--no TV, books or comics.

For some ideas, I found this handy list of films of the 60s.

Standard BBS av size rules apply. Please do not post avs you do not intend to enter. The voting thread will go up Friday evening (ish).

My entry: one of my all-time favorite films, Lawrence of Arabia, starring Peter O'Toole.

Mary Poppins. I had a childhood crush on Julie Andrews anyway.

Aren't James Bond and Mary Poppins SF/F?
