My favorite movies - 1975-1978
1975 - The Hindenburg with George C. Scott and Anne Bancroft. Nominated for 3 Academy Awards and awarded an Oscar for Special Achievements.
1976 - Murder by Death starring everybody. I loved the snarky humor and the spoof of whodunits.
1977 - Star Wars. Duh. It is ranked by IMDB.com as the 20th most popular movie of all time. It won 6 Oscars: Best Art Direction-Set Decoration, Best Costume Design, Best Sound, Best Film Editing, Best Effects, Visual Effects and Best Music, Original Score (to John Williams).
1978 - Superman starring Christopher Reeve and Margot Kidder. John Williams was nominated again for Best Music, Original Score but lost to Giorgio Moroder for Midnight Express.
