These 10 movies have all influenced Quentin’s “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood”. The following is a list of films, welcome to collect!

  1. Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice, 1969

American famous director Paul Mazursky’s comedy in 1969 focused on two couples facing moral crisis.

  1. Easy Rider, 1969

Speaking of one of the most important movies in the 1960s, I believe “Easy Rider” is definitely on the list.

American director Dennis Hopper became famous because of this film, and is regarded as a masterpiece that laid the foundation for the new Hollywood movement in the 1970s.

Starring Peter Fonda and Jack Nicholson, this work tells the story of two riders traveling through the southwestern United States. It is regarded as an existential road movie full of doubts, rebellion and tragedy.

At that time, the cost was less than 500,000 US dollars and sold 60 million US dollars in box office around the world.

  1. Arizona Raiders, 1965

Quentin wrote Leonardo in “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood” as an actor with a Western TV series as the protagonist.

“Arizona Raiders” starring Audie Murphy is the inspiration for Leonardo’s role.

Audie Murphy was originally a retired veteran, but was later excavated to star in a movie and gradually became a popular actor.

This work is also a western movie highly recommended by Quentin.

  1. Getting Straight, 1970

Similar to Dennis Hopper’s “Easy Rider”, this comedy film directed by (Richard Rush) in 1970 further established the era of the new Hollywood movement, and can even be said to completely change the film industry.

The story focuses on student political movements, demonstrations and marches. In this film, you can also see the still young Harrison Ford.

  1. The Wrecking Crew, 1968

This film is the fourth part of the popular superintelligence McHan film series from the 60s to the 70s. The story focuses on McHan’s mission to rescue the world economic crisis.

Because this movie is the last movie starring actress Sharon Tate before being murdered by the Manson family.

Considering that Margroby played Sharon Tate in “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood” and has a very important role.

So Quentin recommends watching Sharon Tate in “The Wrecking Crew” before watching “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood”.

  1. Model Shop, 1970

The first English pronunciation work of the French New Wave “Left Bank” master Jacques Demy.

Although this movie is not that popular, the shadow of Demi’s previous works can be seen in this film.

Such as Lola, Bay of Angels and The Umbrellas of Cherbourg.

The film is directed by the American director David Miller (David Miller), and starred by the star Vince Edwards (Vince Edwards) as the leading role.

The story describes the terrorist plan of the British Intelligence Agency intercepted by the “hammerhead”, which may steal a new nuclear weapon developed by NATO.

So American agent Charles was sent to investigate in depth, hoping to stop the “hammerhead” project.

In the 1960s, Vincent Edward played the leading role in the ABC TV series “Ben Casey” and then turned to the development of the film industry. This context also became the inspiration for the role of Leonardo in “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood”.

  1. Gunman’s Walk, 1958

This film is a western film directed by American director Phil Karlson.

The story describes a rich and powerful rancher who always protects his erring son by paying compensation and bribing witnesses.
