A selection of pages from defunct movie magazines from 1967...
On the front cover, David Hemmings and Vanessa Redgrave in a scene from Antonioni's Blow Up. The sixties were in full swing, but the big budget movies being cranked out include a raft of musicals like Doctor Doolittle, featured inside.

John Frankenheimer's Grand Prix debuts in the ultra-wide format of Cinerama. Many movies shot this way had been historical epics rather than set present day. This incorporated specially shot footage from the previous year's actual Grand Prix races. So much footage was shot that Frankenheimer had enough to devise impressive, multiple, split-screen montages. Note the ticket prices in the advert at bottom left - the best seat in the stalls costs 20 shillings (1 pound).
