22. Marriage Italian Style (1964)
It's a little less annoying than US style

People who added this item 223  Average listal rating (139 ratings) 6.9  IMDB Rating
18. The Last Man on Earth (1964)
Vincent Price delivers a classic performance in this kitchy 50's style sci-fi movie that actually has a decent twist near the end.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 151  Average listal rating (86 ratings) 8  IMDB Rating
17. Fail Safe (1964)

People who added this item 68  Average listal rating (39 ratings) 6.7  IMDB Rating 7.1 
16. Topkapi (1964)
An odd foreign-movie-style-but-English-speaking heist movie with an awesome opening that seems out of place from the rest of the film.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 103  Average listal rating (56 ratings) 7.6  IMDB Rating 7.9 
15. Seven Days in May (1964)
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 111  Average listal rating (70 ratings) 7.3  IMDB Rating 7.1 
14. Kiss Me, Stupid (1964)
Dean Martin essentially plays himself in this goofy comedy. Novak is beautiful as usual, but Felicia Farr actually stands out above her!
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 151  Average listal rating (84 ratings) 7.2  IMDB Rating 7.4 
13. Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow (1963)
Classic Sophia Loren fare
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 262  Average listal rating (170 ratings) 7.2  IMDB Rating 7.6 
12. A Shot in the Dark (1964)
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 109  Average listal rating (71 ratings) 7.2  IMDB Rating 7.1 
11. The Killers (1964)
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 92  Average listal rating (58 ratings) 7.3  IMDB Rating
10. Becket (1964)
O'Toole and Burton bring in powerful performances in this epic movie about the battle between monarchs and the church.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 356  Average listal rating (197 ratings) 7.5  IMDB Rating 7.8 
9. The Umbrellas of Cherbourg (1964)
What starts off as intro song to musical, turns into a song that never ends. It's melodramatic, whimsical and beautiful in its coloring of costumes, and sets.

Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 598  Average listal rating (368 ratings) 7.5  IMDB Rating 7.7 
8. A Hard Day's Night (1964)
Possibly the best of the Beatles movies, and just a joy to watch
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 240  Average listal rating (140 ratings) 7.4  IMDB Rating 7.8 
7. Red Desert (1964)
One of my favorite Antonioni films. Beautifully shot film that proves to be very influential
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 696  Average listal rating (453 ratings) 7  IMDB Rating 7.2 
6. The Pink Panther (1963)
The first is still the best, it's a classic comedy; but it's also one that wouldn't hold up if released today - See: Steve Martin remakes
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 1220  Average listal rating (702 ratings) 7.5  IMDB Rating 7.9 
5. My Fair Lady (1964)


Hepburn is the fairest of them all, whether speaking cockney or singing about dancing all night.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 1270  Average listal rating (884 ratings) 7.8  IMDB Rating 8.1 
4. A Fistful of Dollars (1964)


The greatest western trilogy is the weakest but still exciting as it conquers new territory in the genre, even if it is essentially a remake of 'Yojimbo'.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 2628  Average listal rating (1566 ratings) 8.3  IMDB Rating 8.5 
3. Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Wo... (1964)




Kubrik's satire is so beautifully orchestrated and shot you forget it's intended to be a silly comedy or is it really a drama that is sadly a comedy?
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 2348  Average listal rating (1473 ratings) 7.3  IMDB Rating 7.8 
2. Mary Poppins (1964)




Is there a better musical involving live action and animation, plus penguins?
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 1313  Average listal rating (853 ratings) 7.3  IMDB Rating 7.8 
1. Goldfinger (1964)




Arguably still the best, with nearly every scene iconic.
