Grandes Exitos del Cine de los Años 60 is a studio album recorded for the U. S. market by Entertainer Connie Francis.

Between March 1965 and May 1966,[1] Francis had recorded an English album featuring songs from the soundtracks of then current or recent motion pictures:

The album had been released in July 1966 as MGM Records 12" Album E-4382 (mono pressings) and SE-4382 under the name Movie Greats Of The 60s.[2]

In May 1967,[3] Francis used the instrumental playbacks of nine of the album's featured songs and overdubbed Spanish vocals. "Dance my trouble away", "I will wait for you", and "The Phoenix Love Theme (Senza fine)" were omitted and not re-recorded in Spanish. By adding "Donde hay chicos" (already recorded in 1960), the Spanish version of "Where The Boys Are", the title song from Francis' own movie of the same name, a set of ten songs was compiled and released in July 1967 as MGM Records 12" album E-4474 (mono pressings) and SE-4474 (stereo pressings) under the name "Grandes Exitos del Cine de los Años 60". With an identical cover design, "Grandes Exitos del Cine de los Años 60" was virtually the Spanish edition of "Movie Greats Of The 60s" with a slightly modified track listing.[4]

"Grandes Exitos del Cine de los Años 60" was also released in Spain as Volume 3 of MGM's local series of albums titled "Connie Francis canta en español y en stéreo".[5]
