    Description

    The Graduate (Embassy, 1967). One Sheet (27" X 41") and Lobby Card (11"x14"). Dustin Hoffman became an overnight sensation after appearing as Benjamin Braddock in this classic picture of the 1960s. Rebelling against the desire of his parents that he settle down and take a respectable job, Benjamin starts an illicit affair with a friend of his mother, Mrs. Robinson played by Anne Bancroft. Things start getting out of control when Benjamin starts dating Mrs. Robinson's daughter. The scenes of the older woman seducing the young and nervous man have become legendary. Although Hoffman wasn't the original choice for the part (that was Warren Beatty, and later Charles Grodin), you have to wonder how anyone else could have played the role. Posters for this title without the Academy Awards are surprisingly rare and eagerly sought after especially the ones from the Embassy release as is this one, prior to UA picking the film up. Of the two non-Oscar posters, this photo style is the more desirable. The lobby card displays a surreal image of a confident Bancroft and a confused Hoffman. Both items grade Very Fine.
