Description

    The Graduate (Embassy, 1968). One Sheet (27" X 41") Style B.
    What's poor Benjamin to do? His parents expect "great things" from him. He doesn't really have any direction in life and then there's the wife of his father's business partner that seems to be suggesting an interest in him. Not to mention her very attractive daughter. When The Graduate was released in 1967 the film became an instant hit with the youth of America as they sympathized with Benjamin (Dustin Hoffman) and his plight. The film went on to become the Rebel Without a Cause for the 60s generation and has remained one of the most important films of the era. And need we mention the brilliant soundtrack by Simon and Garfunkel? This stark one sheet features a brilliant design and depicts the emptiness in Ben's life -- filled only by his passions for an older woman. There has been an extremely light bit of airbrushing to the background of this one sheet with just a bit more along the fold lines. This is not uncommon since the background has so much white. The one sheets for this film that pre-date the Oscars are extremely hard to find and very desirable. Very Fine- on Linen.
