Can you recognize these Top 10 movies from the fall of 1969?

James Bond, Charlie Brown and Hitchcock were all at the box office.

Barbra, Bond and Charlie Brown! And zero CGI. That was going to the movies in 1969. It was also nice that tickets cost a little more than a buck.

The fall of 1969 offered something for everybody at the movie theater, from musicals to heists. We gathered ten of the biggest box office smashes from the fall of '69.

Well, we snatched a piece of the poster. It takes a true cinephile to recognize all these movies — even with the hints.

1969 was the last great year for westerns. "True Grit", "The Wild Bunch", "Butch and Sundance", and "Support Your Local Sheriff".

8/10. Messed up on #3 & #5. I can't believe I got those wrong especially #3. I liked Steve McQueen in the Thomas Crown Affair much better than the remake. I think that was Pierce Brosnan? Maybe? And, of course the beautiful Faye Dunaway in the original. She's one of my favorite actresses.

Yep, and Dunaway was in the opening scene of the Brosnan version!

Yeah that's right I remember that now. She's still a beautiful woman.
