Whatever happened to these California cruisers?

George Lucas' evocative tale 'American Graffiti' captured one life-changing night for four young men in 1962 Modesto, California.

Its success helped launch the acting careers of up-and-comers such as Harrison Ford and Richard Dreyfuss -- and gave Lucas the clout to get a little "space opera" entitled 'Star Wars' off the ground.

As 'Graffiti' turns 35, Moviefone checks in with the ensemble cast.
