1967 The Graduate Movie Film Cinema Poster Art Advance Teaser Theatrical

The Graduate (1967)

One of the most famous seduction stories in cinematic history, Mike Nichols’ The Graduate is a funny, gripping, romantic film with some sober statements about the arduous maturation process as well as the rueful ennui of middle age.

This film is the stuff of cinema legend. The strong script based on the novel by Charles Webb, the music by Simon & Garfunkel, and the central performances by Dustin Hoffman, Anne Bancroft and Katharine Ross – one of the most beautiful faces ever to grace the silver screen – add up to an absolute classic and wonderfully entertaining piece of art.


You can find more information on this U.S. movie on Wikipedia and IMDb.

    Agree that Ross was lovely in this film. But look here for a similarly young Anne Bancroft:


    “funny, gripping, romantic” – I would add to this “wicked and cynical”.

    How far apart in years were Bancroft and Hoffman? Less than six! Thanks to movie magic they made her seem “mature” enough to be his mother.
