The counterculture movement of the 60’s had a quite an impact on films. Unlike anything prior, movies began to break social taboos involving sex, violence as well as other cultural norms. Films began causing controversy and fascination, which naturally led to curiosity.

Films as well as television programs became increasingly dramatic and provocative as the cultural revolution got underway.

The cultural revolution was the beginning of the New Hollywood era that dominated the next several years in theater and television. The revolution changed the television and film industry for many years to come.

Films of this time also focused on the changes happening in the world. Films including Easy Rider (1969), starring Dennis Hopper, focused on the new-found world of drug use as well as the dramatically changing socially acceptable culture of the time. Movies became more sexually explicit, such as Roger Vadim’s “Barbarella” (1968) as the counterculture progressed.

The following actresses were some of the most gorgeous, talented and symbolic beauties of television as well as films from the 1960’s.

These talented actresses either won or were nominated for academy awards and were considered the best female leads from the 1960’s.
