CONGRATS KATE aka Snapper Pants on writing your Psychologist exam in Nova Scotia yesterday and PASSING!?
The Graduate by Paul Simon & performed by Paul Simon & Art Garfunkel is dedicated to you today! Yeah! This orginal sound track recording is in mint condition and a keeper for sure. Here’s the trailor for the movie, which I am adding to my record blog movie list:
The Graduate is a 1967 American comedy-drama motion picture directed by Mike Nichols. It is based on the 1963 novel The Graduate by Charles Webb, who wrote it shortly after graduating from Williams College. The screenplay was by Buck Henry, who makes a cameo appearance as a hotel clerk, andCalder Willingham. The film tells the story of Benjamin Braddock (played by Dustin Hoffman), a recent university graduate with no well-defined aim in life, who is seduced by an older woman, Mrs. Robinson (Anne Bancroft), and then proceeds to fall in love with her daughter Elaine (Katharine Ross). In 1996, The Graduate was selected for preservation in the U.S. National Film Registry as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant”. Initially, the film was placed at #7 on AFI’s 100 Years… 100 Movies list in 1998. However, when AFI revised the list in 2007, the film was moved to #17. Adjusted for inflation, the film is #21 on the list of highest-grossing films in the United States and Canada.
“Mrs. Robinson” is a song written by Paul Simon and first performed by Simon & Garfunkel. When released as a single in 1968, it hit number one on theBillboard Hot 100 chart in the US, for their second chart-topping hit after “The Sound of Silence“. An early version of the song appeared in the motion pictureThe Graduate (1967) and its subsequent soundtrack, while the complete song debuted on their album Bookends (1968). The song earned the duo aGrammy Award for Record of the Year in 1969.
CONGRATS KATE the graduate! I MISS YOU AND LOVE YOU XO.
