Hey Nick,

Well, I thought it might make it easier if you take the list a letter at a time so to speak, so I've made a partial list for you of great 70's movies that begin with the letters "A" and "B". I just wanted to make sure the list I gave you was alphabitized, because anybody could just throw you a bunch of films from the 70's that begin with different letters in no particular order, lol. I've probably missed a lot of great films, but I tried my best and hopefully this will help start ya out :)

Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore
Alien
American Graffiti
American Hot Wax
Amityville Horror
And Justice For All
Animal House
Annie Hall
Apocalypse Now
Audrey Rose
Bad News Bears
Bedknobs and Broomsticks
Ben
Black Beauty
Bound For Glory
Boys From Brazil
Breakout
Buddy Holly Story
Butch and Sundance The Early Years
Butterflies Are Free

I would also include "Breaking Away", from 1979. One of my favorite films of the 70's decade, and probably one of the best "coming-of-age" films ever. It was filmed in and around Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana.

The movie stars Dennis Christopher, Dennis Quaid, Daniel Stern, Jackie Earle Haley, and Paul Dooley in a hilarious performance as the father.

In 1980, there was a TV series based upon the movie, with Shaun Cassidy taking the lead role. But the series lasted only one season.

Also include "The Poseidon Adventure" (1972), one of the great "disaster flicks" of the 70's, with an all-star cast: Gene Hackman, Ernest Borgnine, Stella Stevens, Shelley Winters, Jack Albertson, Roddy MacDowell, Red Buttons, Pamela Sue Martin, Carol Lynley, and Leslie Nielsen.

There was a sequel in the late 70's called "Beyond The Poseidon Adventure", but I never saw it. And I guess not too many people have either!

I'm just want to thank Bridgette for bringing up all those titles from the 70's! It really brought me back some memories! I grew up as a teenager throughout that decade.

There are more movie titles that she didn't include but I will include some more titles (and opinions) when I think of them!

I realize this board actually originated as an 80's website. And although I love 80's movies and pop culture, I cannot deny my formation years in the 70's.

Yes, there were plenty of cheesy awful stuff in 70's movies, music, pop culture, etc., but 80's lovers don't seem to realize that the people who became well-known in the 80's, also started out and grew up during the 70's decade. (Example: Madonna graduated from high school in 1976, as I did. Not the same school, of course! :-> )

I speak with quite a few older people, those who grew up in the 60's. And some of them say that in order to appreciate the 60's, you have to understand what the 50's were like. The two decades seem totally opposite and different from one another.

So, I guess that in order to really appreciate one decade, you have to understand and study previous decades.

Anyway, thanks so much again, Bridgette! Please forgive me rambling on!

I noticed "I Spit On Your Grave" was not included on the list, this controversial, violent film must not be forgotten!

Thank you Steven, I'm glad to hear that you appreciated it =-). It took me much research since I don't own too many 70's movies, and I wasn't born until 1981. My mother, who's 43 years old, was a teenager throughout the 70's, so I probably should have asked her for more help. But again, thanx, it feels great to be appreciated =-)
