Calling all movie buffs and cinema connoisseurs! Think you have an impressive amount of classic movie knowledge? Time to put your money where your mouth is and put your 70s movie knowledge to the ultimate test! Can you name these epic movies by just one random scene? The 1970s was a decade for trailblazers and breaking down barriers not only in the film industry but in filmmaking itself. With directors such as Stanley Kubrick, David Lynch, Roman Polanski, Stephen Spielberg, George Lucas, Mel Brooks and Francis Ford Coppola, audiences were given a batch of new films that explored unknown or barely touched territories in genres, special effects and sound. Studios put faith in new, promising talent and allowed creative freedom that gave us masterpieces such as Jaws, Star Wars, Taxi Driver and The Godfather as well as slapstick comedies including Blazing Saddles, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Animal House and Young Frankenstein. Don’t get too ahead of yourself because we also got cult classics like Halloween, Saturday Night Fever, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Annie Hall, Mean Streets, The Omen, Shampoo, Marathon Man and Being There. So sit back and set those films reels all the way back to the epic decade of 1970 and travel back to those funky, out of sight memories and good times with this tricky movie quiz! Ready?
