The Other Films Released in 1966
Marlon Brando wants his horse back.
Gregory Peck & Sophia Loren in a Stanley Donen picture that was very similar to his earlier film “Charade” with Cary Grant & Audrey Hepburn.
The Adam West TV show made feature length with all the classic villains.
Billy the Kid versus Dracula
Vampires and Cowboys directed by William “One-Shot” Beaudine.
Dark and atmospheric character piece from young Roman Polanski. Donald Pleasance is very good in this.
Dracula: Prince of Darkness
Hammer horror with Christopher Lee as Dracula. He was a whole lot better than John Carradine in the Billy the Kid movie.
Wonderful John Wayne vehicle with
Robert Mitchum and a young James Caan added to the mix.
Read more books.
Good special effects in this sci-fi film featuring Raquel Welch.
Michael Caine in his second film as British agent Harry Palmer.
A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum
Great musical comedy. Zero Mostel was very entertaining and it was a treat to see Buster Keaton.
The Ghost and Mr. Chicken
I loved this movie when I was a kid. Don Knotts rocks!
Manos – The Hands of Fate
Was this the worst film ever made? Some say so. It was pretty bad.
One Million Years B.C.
Raquel Welch again in an entertaining Ray Harryhausen dinosaur movie.
James Coburn’s super spy.
The Quiller Memorandum
Suspenseful spy thriller with George Segal. Alec Guinness was great in this.
Fascinating bit of sci-fi horror.
Paul Newman & Julie Andrews in a Hitchcock thriller.
What’s Up, Tiger Lily?
Woody Allen re-imagines a Japanese spy movie.
The Wild Angels
Groovy Roger Corman biker movie.
