1967

In the turbulent 1960’s, it should come as no surprise that many important cultural events occurred in 1967, especially in the field of music.

1967

This was the year that The Doors released their debut album, self-titled, The Doors. The Jimi Hendrix Experience also released their debut album, titled, Are You Experienced. They would release another album this year, titled, Axis: Bold As Love. In another major debut, Pink Floyd released their first album, The Piper at the Gates of Dawn. This was the year that The Beatles released their famous album, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band and their Magical Mystery Tour.

In film, Charlie Chaplin’s last film, A Countess from Hong Kong, opened in the United Kingdom. 1967 was also the year that A Fistful of Dollars, starring Clint Eastwood, opened in the United States. This was the first largely successful “Spaghetti Western” and helped elevate the popularity of the genre and the career of Clint Eastwood. This was the year that The Graduate opened in movie theatres, which was the first major role for Dustin Hoffman. Hoffman would receive an Academy Award nomination for the role. Disney’s animated classic, The Jungle Book also premiered in 1967, with the film having an added weight of significance to it, since it was the last production that Walt Disney himself had a hand in producing.

In developments for television, 1967 was the year that the first color television broadcasts began on BBC2 in the United Kingdom. This was also the year of the first live, international, satellite television production, Our World. The program featured the live debut of The Beatles’ song, “All You Need Is Love.”

As the American war in Vietnam raged on, so did social unrest within the United States. As many people protested the war and the central government’s use of conscription into the armed forces, the great boxer Muhammad Ali refused military service when drafted in 1967. While the decision came at great personal cost to Ali, he stayed true to his word and inspired many others to follow his example, which helped galvanize the antiwar movement in the US.
