Much of the dialogue came directly out of Webb's book, but Henry did make changes, including one famous contribution, the movie's most iconic line. He was totally responsible for the now-storied, "Just one word… Plastics" exchange, in which an older family friend gives Benjamin some unsolicited and fantastically dull career advice.
Henry also plays the role of the room clerk who manages to accidentally disconcert Benjamin by asking him if he's at the hotel "for an affair," meaning a party. Henry's script helped transform The Graduate from a fairly unsuccessful book into a cinema classic. And it launched his career to new heights as well as penning the script for one of the most famous movies of all time might have a tendency to do.
He went on to work on screenplays like Catch another movie with '60s counterculture importHeaven Can Wait which captures his comic style, like The Graduateand Grumpy Old Men. He had Album) successful TV and film acting career and directed a few films as well, not to mention hosting Saturday Night Live ten times.
A young Hollywood producer happened to like a book that no one else really did. When Charles Webb's The Graduate came out, it got lukewarm and mixed reviews. He felt that the main character had a kind of Holden Caulfield vibe and inhabited the same world of youthful alienation as himself. So he started to assemble a crew who he thought could do the movie justice. They were all pretty young and all felt a connection with the main character, Benjamin Braddock the graduate of the title.
Another producer, Joseph Levine, got on board, and later commissioned a college publicity tour that sent Dustin Hoffman to campuses to drum up an audience for the movie. Turman played an extremely important role in creating the movie. He wasn't the kind of producer who tries to screw things up, only to be resisted by a valiant director, but was himself a creative force behind the film.
Adapting it was his idea, after all, and he tapped Nichols to direct and rejecting screenplays from other writers before correctly settling with Buck Henry. Plus, he was able to smirk at his naysayers when the movie eventually became a huge success. Turman went on to produce other successful movies, though many of them are wildly different from The Graduatelike John Carpenter's horror-sci-fi hit The Thing and a violent drama about racism and white supremacists, American History X An example of this is the famous scuba-diving sequence, where we see Ben's parents and their friends from Ben's perspective inside a scuba suit, before he jumps into the swimming pool.
Later, we look up at his father from the bottom of the pool. It's an example of cinematography being used to say something about a character: he feels separate and isolated from everyone else.
Nichols uses frequent shots through glass and water to emphasize Ben's alienation and isolation. Other famous sequences include one that cuts between Benjamin drifting in his pool and staying in the hotel room with Mrs.
Robinson, making it Various - The Graduate - Music From The Broadway Comedy (CD like he's moving from one place to the next without any change in place or time. It conveys how his aimless drifting and his meaningless affair are totally related. Surprisingly, Nichols was a stranger to this kind of montage, but what he was aiming for was a dreamlike sequence—maybe all this was just a fantasy. He had to make the different sets look as similar as possible so the viewer wouldn't notice the transition from one to the other until it actually happened.
The score is one of the most memorable parts of the movie: Simon and Garfunkel's soundtrack echoes Benjamin's own alienation and worried melancholy with songs like "The Sound of Silence" and "Scarborough Fair.
Robinson" is much more lighthearted—an ironic tribute to the artful seductress. In fact, that was the only song written specifically for the movie, and it originally referred to "Mrs. Roosevelt" instead of Mrs. Paul Simon was apparently a pretty slow, painstaking songwriter; his original agreement to write three songs for Album) movie had fallen through. But Nichols had become a fan of some pre-existing Simon and Garfunkel tracks, like "The Sound of Silence," and used those instead.
The use of existing popular music as the soundtrack was a real break from traditional film scoring. The juxtaposition of 'The Sound of Silence,' a deeply personal cri de coeur, against the Los Angeles airport terminal—as Ben is carried robotically along a moving walkway—is both touching and funny.
Benjamin is experiencing the "sound of silence" because he's living in a mental cocoon, drifting on his pool, sleeping with Mrs. Robinson, but not really connecting with anybody. Even though he outwardly seems like a bright, privileged kid who should be thriving in the world, he's internally unsure and conflicted—and inert.
Like Kashner points out, Simon and Garfunkel dip into this deeper undercurrent of emotion; the sad inner life existing behind the seemingly idyllic outer life. Pay attention: it's the song played during the last scene on the bus, as well. Maybe all's not well that ends well after all.
Fun fact: Nichols rejected two Simon Album) Garfunkel songs which Simon actually did write for the movie, "Punky's Dilemma," and "Hazy Shade of Winter," the latter of which appeared on a greatest hits collection Source. Since The Graduate is a comedy-drama about a crazy affair and its unexpected consequences, it's managed to become popular without garnering the kind of extreme fans that Star Wars and Star Trek have.
Robinson's daughter, the forbidden love with whom Benjamin becomes enrapturedhave been cast with young film stars Jason Biggs and Alicia Silverstone. The stage version attempts to balance elements of the film and book but finds the worst in both and the best in neither. There's no sense of innocence, visual style, or s period flavor to spice things up, making the staging with many ideas borrowed from the filmand the dialogue with much material from the original novel bland and ineffective.
Merely having the elements isn't enough if they aren't put together well, and here they make a confusing mess even if you don't know the original coming-of-age story. That Johnson abandoned all hope of a thoughtful, intelligent adaptation is evident during the play's first few moments. The curtain rises on Benjamin, clad in a wet suit, sitting in his bedroom avoiding the graduation party being thrown for him.
It is almost immediately that Mrs. Robinson arrives for the famous seduction scene, which takes place, Album), nonsensically, with his parents and numerous guests downstairs. The scene originally took place in her empty house, not his full one. The scene, like so many to follow, is a meaningless mish-mash of elements, a haphazard combination of scenes from the book and movie that is a poor interpretation of events and makes no dramatic sense.
This scene severely undercuts Mrs. Robinson's determination and craftiness later; it wasn't enough for Johnson to give her a first name, he had to make her stupid, too? This initial scene is probably the most damaging, but Johnson has provided four other entirely new and thoroughly execrable scenes.
One, set in a therapist's office, is an embarrassment, a way for Johnson to cover up mistakes revising the plot elsewhere. The other three - including a complete rewrite of the famous wedding scene - exist primarily to beef up Elaine's character, attempting to make her a modern, more complicated woman. The Elaine of this interpretation is a near-vegetarian feminist, but is still supposed to feel inferior to Ben.
The dialogue Johnson forgot to exclude in which she worries about her suitability for such a worldly, intellectual mate rings completely false after her lengthy accounts of travel, art, and modern animal-rights credos. Plagued with contradictions and the show's worst dialogue most of it newit's a burden no actor should be forced to bear, and Alicia Silverstone is stuck with a hopeless cause.
Biggs and Turner have it hard as well, having to draw lines of connection between the many disparate events of Johnson's script, and perform embarrassing staging, including a montage of under-the-sheets sex acts choreographed to "Wouldn't It Be Nice? Katherine Turner is a good match for Biggs, but never finds a way to explain Mrs.
Robinson's behavior. Bancroft's vulnerability did it in the film, and it's unreasonable to expect Turner to make the same choice, but is it not reasonable to expect her to make a choice? She's not alone.
All the smaller roles, without exception, are embarrassingly performed, one-dimensional portrayals by actors who should all know better. But they can't be blamed entirely, as their playwright and director gave them nothing to work with.
This version of The Graduate plays as a Cliffs Notes telling of the story, with no detail or color holding the pieces together. There may be decent sets Rob Howell's assorted variety of creatively-used doors and lights Hugh Vanstone or workable if unexciting costumes also by Howellbut the story, robbed of its nuances and subtext, never lives onstage.
