I saw The Graduate this weekend for the first time...I know I am so far behind I live under a rock. Anyway, I loved it and love Anne Bancroft and Katharine Ross, both of these women are too stunning for words. The movie is pretty risque for 1967 and has won numerous awards for the directing and acting. Basically if you have not seen it like me, go see it soon.
Like most movies I watch I notice the set design more than anything else. Sometimes I find myself missing the entire plot because I am caught up in seeing what this bedroom looks like or how that family room is set up. My favorite scenes in this movie were Mrs. Robinson's house and the Taft Hotel where Ben and Mrs. Robinson meet up. The Ambassador Hotel was the actual filming location, it was just made to look like the Taft Hotel.
Here is my Mrs Robinson and The Graduate inspired board
