THE MOVIES: "THE SIXTIES"
August 11, 2019  | By David Bianculli

CNN, 9:00 p.m. ET

 
Last week’s scheduled episode of The Movies, devoted to The Sixties, was pre-empted, and for a horrible reason: CNN’s breaking news coverage of last weekend’s tragic mass shootings. (It’s the shootings that were horrible, not the network’s coverage or programming decisions). CNN has rescheduled The Sixties for tonight, and I’ll be very relieved if we get to see it. Movies that ought to be covered in this installment include 2001: A Space Odyssey, Dr. Strangelove and Lolita, as well as films directed by someone other by Stanley Kubrick. Films such as The Graduate, Bonnie and Clyde, Cleopatra, Lawrence of Arabia, The Producers, Mary Poppins, Goldfinger, Barbarella, and A Hard Day’s Night.
