GraduateA couple of years ago as part of their fascinating Present at the Creation series, NPR's Morning Edition took a look at The Graduate. The piece itself (which you can listen to here) explores, not surprisingly, the creation of the film, from Charles Webb's source novel to early casting ideas ( Doris Day as Mrs. Robinson, Robert Redford as Benjamin). What's most valuable about the page linked below, however, is that it pulls together six different NPR stories that touch on the movie, including the relevant segments of stand-alone interviews with director Mike Nichols, star Dustin Hoffman, and screenwriter Buck Henry.

The page may be slightly old news, but it's a treasure trove of information on a fan-freaking-tastic movie. Anyway, it's never the wrong time for The Graduate.
