George Clooney recently listed the 100 best movies from 1964-1976, his favorite period. IMDb founder Col Needham checked his IMDb vote history (up-to-date of course) and did his own advanced title search: I've seen a total of 764 movies from this range and included below are the 41 which I have rated 9/10 or 10/10 on IMDb; the list is in reverse chronological order but my 10/10s are: Jaws, Network, Once Upon a Time in the West, Taxi Driver, Carrie, The Godfather, High Plains Drifter, Guess Who's Coming to Dinner and From Noon Till Three, All the President's Men.
