There has never been a decade quite like the ˜60s! An era of change, conflict and hope, it will be fondly remembered for its revolutionary thinking, the fight for freedom of expression and its definitive slogan to ˜Make Love Not War'. Here we celebrate the ˜60s by bringing together four of the greatest films of the decade; Alfred Hitchcock's iconic thriller The Birds; the historic epic Spartacus; literary classic To Kill a Mockingbird; and timeless Western The War Wagon starring the legendary John Wayne.

Collection of four classic films from the 1960s. In 'The Birds' (1963) spoiled socialite Melanie Daniels (Tippi Hedren) pursues lawyer Mitch Brenner (Rod Taylor) to his Bodega Bay home after they meet in a bird shop. Melanie sails across the bay to deliver the gift of a lovebird to Mitch's young sister, only to be attacked by a gull on her way back. Soon random attacks on humans are taking place all over Bodega, as birds of all varieties mass in their thousands overhead. 'Spartacus' (1960) stars Kirk Douglas as the eponymous Thracian gladiator, leading the slaves of the Roman Empire in a rebellion against their masters. As the slave army makes its way across Italy towards the coast, the despotic Roman senator Crassus (Laurence Olivier) determines to quell the revolt for his own selfish ends. In 'To Kill a Mockingbird' (1962) Alabama lawyer Atticus Finch (Gregory Peck) is appointed to defend Tom Robinson (Brock Peters), a black man accused of raping a young white woman. The controversial nature of the trial, taking place in the racist culture of the Deep South, leads the local townsfolk to turn against Finch and sees his family become the victim of a series of brutal terror attacks. Finally, in 'The War Wagon' (1967), rancher Taw Jackson (John Wayne) seeks revenge upon corrupt businessman Frank Pierce (Bruce Cabot) who had robbed him of his life savings and his reputation years before. When he discovers that Pierce is hiding a large shipment of gold bullion in an armoured stagecoach, Taw gathers together a motley crew to help him steal it.
