The blockbuster summer movie season as we know it began in the 1970s. We can thank George Lucas and Steven Spielberg for that, as Jaws and Star Wars had people lining up down the sidewalk.

Of course, those 1975 and 1977 smashes did not invent the idea of the summer movie. After all, teen beach movies were big business in the Sixties.

Horror, comedy and action were all on offer in the hottest months. See if you can remember the missing words from these hit movies of the 1970s.
