When it comes to film, the 1970's were seen as the Golden Era of Hollywood where the funniest comedies were made, and the drama films were extremely dramatic. It has also been argued that the world's best actors and actresses performed during that decade, some of whom include Mary Tyler Moore, Burt Reynolds, Jack Nicholson, Barbra Streisand, Clint Eastwood and Michael Douglas.
Like some of the movies being produced today, many of the movies from the 1970's were based on real documented events, novels, and plays. Like "The Godfather," "The Rocky Horror Picture Show," "Jaws," "The Exorcist," and "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest," they paved the way for many of the adapted films that we see today. 'The 70's were also a time where film directors became just as popular as their films. Some of them, like Ridley Scott and Francis Ford Coppola, continue to be some of the most sought-after directors.
