The Graduate

The-graduateWe watched The Graduate last night.  It was released in 1967.  I enjoyed the movie back then and again last night.  Sometimes when I see a movie from long ago it just doesn’t hold up, but this one did for me.   Dustin Hoffman and Ann Bancroft were excellent and Katherine Ross is nice to look at too.

It was fun to see things from that era.  Like rotary dial telephones, phone booths, and especially a scene where Dustin Hoffman is drinking a canned beer and you can easily see that it was opened with a ‘church key’ (a device that punctured a can leaving a triangle shaped hole).

To this day, the soundtrack for The Graduate (Simon and Garfunkel) is my favorite soundtrack.
