List Rules Vote up your favorite film comedies that were released in the 1960s.

The 1960s was a great decade for comedy. With the counterculture flourishing, the Cold War looming, and tensions in Vietnam heightening, Hollywood responded with a catalogue of funny films that commented on the dynamic shifts in society.


What are the best ‘60s comedy movies? 
Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb might top your list. The black comedic satire, starring comedy legend Peter Sellers playing multiple roles, was directed by Stanley Kubrick. Kubrick created several iconic moments in the film that have become part of the pop culture lexicon, including Major Kong, played by character actor Slim Pickens, riding a nuclear bomb like a rodeo bull.


On this list of the greatest ‘60s comedy movies, you will also find such classics as
The Producers, The Odd Couple, and My Fair Lady. Vote up the best 1960s comedy movies below, and be sure to let us know what you think in the comment section.
