1970s film quiz

Trying to change up a bit the topics I write quizzes on, as it seems all I've done recently on here is knock together twenty questions and post them up. So, today's topic is 1970s film. I do love films, and I think the 1970s was very possibly the best decade in the medium's history, so here goes. Everything from mainstream to foreign cinema. Some of the questions may be fairly difficult, but I've tried to have a decent mix.

I'll try to write one of these a day for the next few days, but we'll see how that goes.
