What changes in society did 1960s movies have?
Some films pushed the envelope morals-wise by digressions into such thematics as homosexuality ( The sergeant, Midnight Cowboy, Gaily Gaily) some films dealt with drug abuse among the film colony- a subject previously taboo- the Jacqueline Suzann novel Valley of the Dolls- made into a film (Sans) Judy Garland, who was originally considered for one of the roles- is also credited with popularizing the term Funny Farm as a synonym for Mental Hospital. On the other hand some rather deep but not action-oriented social problems such as miscegeneation ( race-mixing) and inter-religious tolerance or the lack thereof did not fare well- in the sixties. so it goes.
