Films Watched and Included in this Blog - 1960s

When I research an actor or actress I would normally watch a film in its entirety to make sure I have the right information regarding the character name and any other information I care to include. Occasionally, this isn't possible owing to the film being only available in part or not at all so I have to rely on other sources for the picture. This is very rare and I can only think of around three or four instances of this happening in the entire blog. When this does happen I endeavour to credit the source website. Many of the screen caps come from films that I have come across on YouTube, but occasionally I use commerical sources such as DVDs to capture the pictures. I do this blog for educational purposes and to hopefully encourage people to go and watch the film for themselves.

Below is the list of films in chronological order that I have watched to create this blog. All my entries into this blog are of actors or actresses who have appeared in films or television sometime between 1888 and 1969. Later films are only included where there were actors in them from the aforementioned period. For example, Jack Nicholson began his film career in the 1950s and was still acting in the 2010s and therefore any film I watch with Jack Nicholson in will be included.

Next to the film title is the names of all of the actors, actresses and extras known to have appeared in the film. Some will have links to take you to thir page in this blog.

[PLEASE NOTE: This cross-referencing project is a work in progress.]
