My Review of The Graduate at the Roxy

 

The Roxy Regional TheatreThe Graduate is playing at the Roxy Regional Theatre. I went and saw it last Saturday night, here is my review of the performance.

Many of you have seen the movie which starred Dustin Hoffman, Anne Bancroft, and Katherine Ross. Many more have heard the song Mrs Robinson by Simon and Garfunkel which is based on snippets of music which appeared in the movie.

The song was not completed for the film; only snippets are heard as incidental music. When the film and the music became popular, Paul Simon put the snippets together into a complete song which rose to the top of the charts in 1968 knocking The Beatles’ White Album off the number one spot.
