A New Era Of Films Dawns
7 January 2011 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

How one views this episode probably depends upon how one views the 1960s. If you think the decade was bad news, you won't like the glorifying of liberal thought and films and if you thought the '60s were very cool, you'll love this segment.

One emphasis was just the fact that days of moguls were completely done now, Hollywood films being produced by either mega-corporations or by independent filmmakers. They also took a hard look at European films ("New Wave," etc.), played more to the young audiences that were now attending (a majority being 24 years old and younger), watched the rise of power of the film critic....and a lot more. All of these seven episodes were packed with topics and information.

Among the films highlighted were Cleopatra, Dr. Strangelove, Who's Afraid Of Virginia Wolfe, Bonnie and Clyde, The Graduation, Guess Who's Coming To Dinner, The Green Berets, Night Of The Living Dead and Easy Rider.

All in all, another interesting segment topped by a touching tribute to those old moguls who built Hollywood and the movies to the lofty cultural status and profitable business enterprise (usually) that it became.
