THE GRADUATE

Anne Bancroft, in Mike Nichols’ groundbreaking 1967 comedy film, delivers a performance every bit as funny, and memorable, as that of leading man Dustin Hoffman. In real life, she was only six years older than Hoffman when she played the older seductress to his naïve college grad – but Mrs. Robinson became iconic for the way Bancroft played and embodied her, as well as for Paul Simon’s titular song salute. As Mrs. Robinson, she even dressed like a cougar.
