“This is Benjamin. He’s a little worried about his future.”
For the 2017 50th Anniversary release of Mike Nichols’ remastered classic “The Graduate”, artist Rory Kurtz has created one of the most outstanding film posters of recent memory; a true cinematic masterpiece featuring Benjamin (Dustin Hoffman) with a cougar (you don’t have to be Einstein to ‘get’ the symbolic imagery). The original film was incredibly popular and re-released on a number of occasions over the years but this standout UK quad poster from 2017 features country unique, British imagery and with this pristine example you would be hard pressed to find a better looking poster. Having a very limited release these posters are incredibly rare. Totally original and unrestored this rolled (as issued) poster presents and displays to exceptional effect and represents a superb example of genuinely scarce modern film memorabilia featuring one of Hollywood’s greatest romantic comedy’s…classic and very COOL!
Trivia: In the famous promotional still and original poster for this film, Dustin Hoffman is seen in the background framed by Mrs. Robinson’s shapely leg. The leg in that photo didn’t belong to Anne Bancroft, however; it belonged to a then-unknown model, Linda Gray, who later played Mrs. Robinson in a London stage musical of The Graduate & Sue Ellen Ewing in the TV show Dallas.
