Few films have defined a generation as The Graduate did. The alienation, the nonconformity, the intergenerational romance, the blissful Simon and Garfunkel soundtrack--they all served to lob a cultural grenade smack into the middle of 1967 America, ultimately making the film the third most profitable up to that time. Seen from a later perspective, its radical chicness has dimmed a bit, yet it's still a joy to see Dustin Hoffman's bemused Benjamin and Anne Bancroft's deliciously decadent, sardonic Mrs. Robinson. The script by Buck Henry and Calder Willingham is still offbeat and dryly funny, and Mike Nichols, who won an Oscar for his direction, has just the right, light touch. --Anne Hurley

|What's this latest DVD version like?||
I guess I don't know if YOU'RE American, but since I've never heard of this "Best Sellers" line of DVDs, I doubt this is a new American DVD, and I would assume that MGM/Sony/Fox or whoever has the responsibility for this film at the moment on DVD will indeed be doing a full-blown 2-disc...

|Is it anamorphic 16x9 (enhanced for widescreen tvs)?||
Hel-LO! Read the topmost couple of reviews right here--yes, it's the real deal. As someone said in another movie, I am once again available for dancing in the streets!

The copy that I got did not have extras. It seems like MGM/Fox didn't create new DVDs but used what they had in stock so some people got the 40th Anniversary DVD and others got a different release.

One of Amazon's competitors lists this version as being 2.35 : 1, but as always, you never know for sure until you get the DVD in your player.

|Does anyone else think...(Spolirs)||
Those are loaded questions. Everyone who loves this film will have his/her own interpretations which (I think) is one of the reasons why The Graduate has been so popular.
