Cute, but a bit on the slight side


Comedy

Rod Lott
Imagine, if you will, that Jane Fonda were a virgin. I know, I know — even in 1963, this had to require some serious suspension of disbelief.

Period of Adjustment / Tall Story

Before she was a serious actress, Jane Fonda was seriously fun.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Now available from Warner Archive, 1962's "Period of Adjustment," is very much of its time: one where people would "drink a bicarb" for sour stomachs, where spouses slept in separate beds, where Jane Fonda was quite the cutie, despite near-beehive hair.

The Chapman Report

The women of 'The Chapman Report' are as uncomfortable talking about sex as they are having it.


Drama

Rod Lott
Judging by the 1962 portrayed by The Chapman Report, everybody smoked cigarettes, LPs of poetry readings were a hot commodity, and the female orgasm had yet to be invented. While this film from legendary old-Hollywood director George Cukor (My Fair Lady) was determined to be earnest and serious in its time, it's quite a hoot today.

Peace, Love & Misunderstanding

You'll want to punch a hippie.


Drama

Phil Bacharach
Nothing can bring out one’s inner Richard Nixon like a flight of baby-boomer whimsy that rubs your nose in 1960s nostalgia. Peace, Love & Misunderstanding, a gentle-minded paean to the Woodstock generation, might just make you want to punch a hippie.
