Hundreds of full-length films were produced during the 1960s.

The decade is known for being prominent in historical drama, psychological horror, and comedy, as well as the sub-genres of spy film, sword and sandal, and spaghetti westerns, all peaking during this decade.

* Historical drama films continued to include epics, in the style of "Ben-Hur" from 1959, with "Cleopatra" (1963), but also evolving with 20th-century settings, such as "The Guns of Navarone" (1961), "Lawrence of Arabia" (1962) and "Doctor Zhivago" (1965).

* Psychological horror films extended, beyond the stereotypical monster movies of Dracula/Frankenstein or Wolfman, to include more twisted films, such as "Psycho" (1960) and Roger Corman's Poe adaptations for American International Pictures as well as British companies Hammer Horror and Amicus Productions.

* Comedy films became more elaborate, such as the "The Pink Panther" (1963), "The President's Analyst" (1967), or "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum" (1966). "Breakfast at Tiffany's" (1961) elevated the concept of a comedy-drama, where the subtle comedy conceals the harsher elements of the drama beneath, and Stanley Kubrick's "Dr. Strangelove" (1962) set a new standard for satire by turning a story about nuclear holocaust into a sophisticated black comedy.

* Beyond the trenchcoat and film noir, spy films expanded with worldly settings and hi-tech gadgets, such as the James Bond films "Dr. No" (1962) or "Goldfinger" (1964) and "Thunderball" (1965).

* Similar to spy films, the heist or caper-films included worldly settings and hi-tech gadgets, as in the original "Ocean's Eleven" (1960), "Topkapi" (1964) or "The Thomas Crown Affair (1968 film)".

* The spaghetti westerns (made in Italy or perhaps Spain), were typified by Clint Eastwood movies, such as "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly" (1966) or "Hang 'Em High" (1968); however, several dashing Italian actors had their own series of such westerns.

* Science-fiction or fantasy films employed a wider range of special effects, as in the original of "The Time Machine" (1960) and "Mysterious Island" (1961), or with animated aliens or mythical creatures, as in the Harryhausen animation for "Jason and the Argonauts" (1963). Some extensive sets were built to simulate alien worlds or zero-gravity chambers, as in space-station and spaceship sets for the epic "" (1968), the psychedelic, space settings for the erotic "Barbarella" (1968), and with ape-city in the original "Planet of the Apes".

Toward the end of the decade, films turned increasingly dramatic, unbalanced, and hectic as the cultural revolution was starting and the films were taking shape of what was to come in the 1970s.
