The 1968 Oscars: Hollywood on the Brink of a Revolution
The 1968 Oscars, honoring films from 1967, featured an eclectic group nominated for the Best Picture category that reflected the radically changing American culture and chaos of the times. At this pivotal time in Hollywood and American history, the nominees - Bonnie and Clyde, The Graduate, Guess Who's Coming to Dinner, In the Heat of the Night and Doctor Doolittle - embodied the changing tastes of American moviegoers, as well as the growing generational divide and a greater acceptance of diversity. This discussion, with clips from all five films, will examine the conditions that spurred their production, engendered their popularity and assured their revolutionary impact on the future of Hollywood moviemaking.
