Which film started the American New Wave also known as New Hollywood? Bonnie & Clyde

In the 1950s and 1960s, Hollywood declined, not least due to the success of television. In 1967, however, the New Wave started with the film 'Bonnie & Clyde', followed by classics such as 'The Graduate and 'Easy Rider. The new generation of directors called themselves 'Movie Brats' and included Francis Ford Coppola and Martin Scorsese, who broke through with 'The Godfather' and 'Mean Streets' respectively. The Wave ended in the 1970s to give way to the term 'Blockbusters', the first example of which was 'Jaws'.
