Were you one of the brave souls who saw Exorcist and then couldn’t sleep for weeks? Maybe your tastes ran more towards attending some of the finest films in the decade including “The Godfather” which was selected for preservation into the National Film Registry or “One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest”, regarded as one of the best films ever made. No matter what your favorite film was, if you were a movie-goer you’ll recognize most of these blockbuster films. Try your hand at naming these ‘70s flicks based on their all-star cast.
