Interview: 1970s – golden age of movies

Print More

The late film critic Pauline Kael once labeled the 1970’s as “Hollywood’s single authentic golden age.” The decade gave birth to many classic films that were based on books, including The Godfather, Apocalypse Now and One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. The era will get its due this weekend as part of a conference sponsored by the Vermont Humanities Council called “Movies, Books and the 70’s: Hollywood’s Golden Age.”

Mitch Wertlieb talks with author and critic Molly Haskell, who will be attending the conference. (To hear the interview, click on the “Listen” icon.)
