Behind the scenes photos of classic movies from the 60s

Unquestionably, the ’60s was the golden era in Hollywood. Some of the most influential classic films such as Psycho, The Graduate, 2001: Space Odyssey and Cleopatra  has been released in this decade.

There is something quaintly beautiful about the counterculture movies of the ‘60s: the classiness, the costumes, that slangy dialogue.

Hundreds of full-length films were produced during the 1960s.Historical drama films continued to include epics, in the style of Ben-Hur from 1959, with Cleopatra (1963), but also evolving with 20th-century settings, such as The Guns of Navarone (1961), Lawrence of Arabia (1962) and Doctor Zhivago (1965).
