A lot of different factors have come into play to shape the generation of baby boomers, but perhaps none so much as the movies which were released during the prime years of this age group. Those successful and popular films which came out between the 1940s and the 1990s helped to influence the way baby boomers see the world when it comes to romance, values, ambitions and goals. Though a lot of time has passed since some of these popular movies were first released (more than 50 years in some cases!), true fans still remember them like they came out yesterday. Some of the biggest movies still watched and loved by baby boomers today include “Letter from An Unknown Woman”, “Nightmare on Elm Street”, “The Bridge on the River Kwai”, “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington”, “My Best Friend's Wedding”, “Officer and a Gentleman”, “The Hunt for Red October”, “The Graduate”, “Field of Dreams”, “The Seven Year Itch”, “Meet Me in St. Louis”, “One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest”, “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid”, “Mutiny on the Bounty”, “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes”, “Some Like It Hot”, “Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves”, “Back to the Future”, “North by Northwest”, “All About Eve”, “The Sound of Music”, “Rebel without a Cause”, “Creature from the Black Lagoon”, “A Streetcar Named Desire”, “The Night of the Hunter”, “The Ten Commandments”, “Dirty Dancing”, “The Shining”, “Flashdance” and “River of No Return”.
