The Graduate (52:35)
This much-ballyhooed Mike Nichols‘ counter-culture com-dram makes for T100P ‘cast #73. Baby boomers and the AFI absolutely worship this flick. Does the sex comedy hold up after 47 years? I just want to say one word to you, just one word: download!
For The Record: Next week’s Not 100 Project selection (The Shining) is the 8th Not 100 flick, not the 7th.
