List RulesOnly romantic comedies that were released in the 1960s

These are the best 60s Romantic comedies, ranked from best to worst by fan votes. Some good 60s romantic comedies are all time classics, while some films on this list were more a product of their decade and weren't destined to be remembered and watched for generations to come. That doesn't make those particular films not worthy of being on this list, in fact that is exactly why they are on here. These are some of the defining movies of the decade even if they aren't celebrated in many circles today.

What movies can you expect to see on this list? In the 1961 film, Breakfast at Tiffany's Audrey Hepburn stole everyone's hearts as the adorable society girl, Holly Golightly. This great romantic comedy took home two Oscars for Best Score and Best Original Song for “Moon River.” The Apartment is another good romantic comedy that was released in the 1960s. Michael Caine starred as a young playboy who meets many women, but ends up feeling alone in the movie, Alfie. Other great movies that appear on this top '80s romantic comedies list include Charade, Barefoot in the Park, and Viva Las Vegas.
