Great films from the greatest era

The Godfather
Story of a Gangster
Family ties explored
Wisdom in every word

One flew over the cuckoo's nest
Non conformist hero
Confronts a by the book nurse
Greatest acting seen on screen follows

The French Connection
Drug smuggling the foundation
Greatest car chase filmed
Best Actor Oscar deservely earned

DeathWish audience wish
Cleaning the Streets of NY
Muggers and thugs killed
Not a revenge story provex its skill

Smokey and the Bandit
In a time frame to transit
Beer from Texas Sheriff on trail
Pontiac Transam sets screen ablaze

Dirty Harry cop in fury
Inspired by a true story
Serial killer on the loose
Mystery Suspense Thriller together looped

Diamonds are Forever
Style and class to endure
Smuggling just a cover
Blofeld tries to seize power

Live and Let die
Drug trafficking to spy
Action scenes never outdone
Suave Cool Class and Style undone

Get Carter Gritty thriller
in search of brother
Against gangsters in Manchester
Revenge film of the first order

Bonnie and Clyde
dead bodies in the wayside
Robbing banks for fun
Classic film remains fun

The Cincinnati kid
On the poker table he'll fit
Compulsive gambler
Pushing the limit his nature

Westworld science fiction told
Set in a theme park
Robots coming to life
Inspiration for Science fiction

The Graduate
Young and old mate
Fights against fate
Great music yet to date

Brubaker prison warden
Reform his only mission
Against the establishment
Futility of his actions

Cool Hand Luke
Prison film a classic
Escape from jail
Cought in the trail

In the Heat of the Night
Redneck Sheriff and FBI agent
Racist backdrop never shown better
Join together to solve a murder

The Samurai
Ruthless killer for hire
Best in the genre
Actors lived the characters

Fear over the city
A killer with no pity
Cop got on his trail
Stunts will stun even today

Investigation of a citizen above suspicion
Murder mystery to solve
Cat and mouse game played
Special film takes the viewer on a journey

Patton war hero
Complex Character deeply explored
Every scene close to reality
Slice of World War History

Sholay greatest Indian film ever made
Crooks hired to catch a dacoit
Male bonding comes beyond the screen
All genres in one s lesson in filmmaking

Enter the Dragon
Drugs and Women trafficking in an island
Action scenes never before seen
Philosophy another dimension woven in every scene

Point Blank Deserted by his wife
 left for dead
Revenge on his mind
Paranoia film the best of its kind
