The 70s, where you wanted to make love, not war. Where you wore what you wanted and gave freely. This was the decade where so many classic things were out of this world popular. Such as pet rocks, Atari, 8-tracks, Charlie’s Angels, mood rings, and so much more! But even with all the groovy music and love spread around, nothing could stand up to those movies. This was the era where Disney really picked up, and horror movies actually became gruesome. Anyone who was around in the 70s can probably name you twenty movies off the top of their heads that came out during that decade. But what about the rest of you? And beyond! Can you simply finish these movies titles with nothing more than a screenshot of the movie itself?

Don’t be afraid to grab for hints if you need a little push. This was forty plus years ago. It’s not easy to remember that far back unless you’re Rain Man himself. So take it easy and just let your instincts take over as you recall the names of these 1970s movies!

HBO Was The First Cable Network

HBO Was The First Cable Network

The arrival of satellite television jeopardized so many industries. Theaters thought that no one would want to go out anymore if they could watch the movies at home. Local vendors believed that no one would use their resources for weather and such. None of this happened of course, but one of the earliest subscription-based cable networks was The Green Channel. This was supported by Time Inc. in 1972 and was soon changed to the name we all know and love, HBO (Home Box Office).

Their first commercial-free airing was of Sometimes a Great Notion (1970). The company felt so good about what they were doing that they signed a six-year, $7.5 million contract! Afterwards, they broadcasted Ali vs. Frazier boxing match ("Thrilla in Manila") in October 1975 for the entire world to see. Because of this, HBO is known as “the first successful, satellite-delivered pay-cable service in the U.S.”

Soon after this, other companies began to follow in the big man’s (HBO’s) footsteps. A few of the following channels were Viacom’s Showtime (1976, with satellite broadcast in 1978), Warner Amex’s The Movie Channel (1979), Time/HBO’s Cinemax (1980), the Disney Channel (1983) and AMC (1984).

The introduction of cable also introduced the freedom to use adult content and language via the paid networking. Although it was intensely controversial, it was generally looked at as another step towards ultimate freedom.
