Another super iconic poster that I knew wouldn’t work for me. My original idea was to use an image from the bus or church scene, but I was never happy with those. When I found this promotional still I knew that was the one. The image on the tv is the “plastics” scene and helped add a little pop of color. One of my favorites.
Amy & Paul scuba-dive into 1967’s generation-gap dramedy The Graduate! They look for thematic connections in early Nichols & May sketches, wonder how such a small scale film became an enormous hit, and ask whether Mrs. Robinson is a fantasy or a fully-formed character. Plus: Katharine Ross (Elaine) joins Amy to praise Mike Nichols’ direction.
