It takes a true film buff to know the names of the top movies of 1969

These blockbusters are real brain teasers.

Americans went to see far artier films in 1969. Need evidence? Take a look at the top-grossing movies from that year. (Not yet. That would be cheating.) 

Sure, there were a few cowboys and spies getting into action, but elsewhere plots dealt with relationships and explored emotions. They were based on acclaimed literary novels and stage plays. There was hardly a talking robot or superhero fish man in sight.

No wonder some of them are rather obscure today. They raked in big bucks back then, but they would be cult indie releases today. Despite the big names on the marquee.

It takes a true movie expert to ace this one. Give it a shot.
