When Did You Graduate?







The Graduate.....was first released in a 1967 and is an drama / comedy film directed by Mike Nichols and written by Calder Willingham and Buck Henry.

It was based on the 1963 novel  by Charles Webb, who wrote it shortly after graduating from Williams College.

The film hit the big screen on December 22, 1967.....
It was the top grossing film of 1968....the year that I graduated from high school.

It grossed $104.9 million....  When that amount is adjusted for inflation, that's a whopping $754 million in today's money!
