The 1960s

Ninety percent of U.S. homes had a television set in the 60s, and most of them were tuned to Johnny Carson after he took-over the hosting duties of the popular late night show, "The Tonight Show." Congress creates "PBS," and the "Motion Picture Rating System" debuts with "G," "PG," "R" and "X" ratings.

Do you remember your favorite movies of the 1960s? Here are some of the most popular movies from that decade in alphabetical order.
