Good News in History, December 22

On this day 50 years ago, The Graduate debuted, picturing tortured love on movie theater screens across the U.S. The film starred a boyishly awkward Dustin Hoffman (who earned the part over Robert Redford because he possessed that exact quality). He played Benjamin Braddock, a recent college graduate with no well-defined aim in life, who is seduced by an older woman (played by Anne Bancroft) but then falls in love with her daughter. Director Mike Nichols won an Oscar for directing one of the greatest comedy-dramas of all time. WATCH the trailer… (1967)
