1967: A Look Back at the Greatest Year in Cinema History
60 min.

The roots of the storied New Hollywood Era can be traced back to 1967, the landmark year when young mavericks and seasoned professionals fired their opening salvos in a groundbreaking, trendsetting revolution that continues to inspire contemporary filmmakers. Movies as diverse as BONNIE AND CLYDE and COOL HAND LUKE boldly challenged the restraints of the increasingly irrelevant Production Code, while even GUESS WHO’S COMING TO DINNER, an old-fashioned concoction starring living legends Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn, explicitly acknowledged that times were indeed a-changing.

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of that wonderful year, the 2017 Dallas International Film Festival offers a special 1967 retrospective program, including this panel discussion on the greatest year in cinema history!
