If you've been seduced by the seductive powers of Mrs. Robinson, or find yourself afraid of Virginia Woolf, you might want to head for New York City in April. The Hollywood Reporter posts that The Museum of Modern Art is gearing up for a two-week retrospective of 17 Mike Nichols films from April 14-May 1 (at MoMA's Roy and Niuta Titus Theaters).

The plan is to show projects that range from his early work like the classic The Graduate and Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, plus more recent cinematic excursions like Charlie Wilson's War and Angels in America. But as with any big retrospective, the big draw will be "Mike Nichols in Conversation." The director will be on-hand on April 18 for an informal conversation, not just with some random interviewer, but with a collection of his closest writing and acting collaborators. This list includes Nora Ephron, Elaine May, and Buck Henry.

For those of us who can't be there ... we've got YouTube, so I hope you enjoy this classic scene:
