Can you complete the titles of these 1970s summer movies?

The best part was, these flicks only cost a couple of bucks.

The blockbuster summer movie season as we know it began in the 1970s. We can thank George Lucas and Steven Spielberg for that, as Jaws and Star Wars had people lining up down the sidewalk.

Of course, those 1975 and 1977 smashes did not invent the idea of the summer movie. After all, teen beach movies were big business in the Sixties.

Horror, comedy and action were all on offer in the hottest months. See if you can remember the missing words from these hit movies of the 1970s.

Wasn't familiar with the last 2 as much as the others so 15/17, but I wouldn't have even gotten that far without memories with mom & dad!

Aced it, although I wasn't at all sure about "Corvette Summer". Now all we need is a nostalgia channel that shows these old movies. How about it, MeTV? Turner Classics will occasionally show a movie from the 70's, like "Logan's Run", but not too often.

It was Corvette Summer where Mark Hamill got hurt and needed his chin fixed.
