Great list! Psych Out, The Trip and Easy Rider love those! I believe there is another film like these with Peter Fonda, more like The Trip but I can't recall the name, I have the LP somewhere...

Two Lane Black Top is really great too 👌 one of my favorites from that era.

No mention of these two?!😳

I read some articles about this film a while back. Aside from the final scene, it's always night and it's always been raining. They actually wet everything down for filming.

Here's the original opening scene and some others that were deleted:

Just watched Straw Dogs on YouTube. Started off slow but ended up being pretty good. Thanks for the recommendation.

Domino Principle -Gene Hackman, Richard Widmark, Eli Wallach, Candace Bergen, Mickey Rooney in a story that shows just because you're paranoid doesn't mean somebody's not out to get you. This movie got ragged on by "critics" but I though it was pretty
good mostly because of the cast.

Dracula Vs. Frankenstein - more laffs-per-scene than Airplane, but that's not what they were going for, I don't think. I dare you to sniff a cork during this one. "Dracula" appears to have been played by Frank Zappa using a fake name.

Oh yeah, I forgot about Gargoyles. Good movie.

Another made for TV movie. The plot is typical Hollywood but watching the P-40 is cool.
