We got to enjoy another great movie last night presented by Cinespia at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. One of my all time favorites! The Graduate!
Along with the great acting, cinemotography and that fabulous Simon and Garfunkle music, I love the sets! The mid century modern stylings of the era are amazing! Of course the movie was very current at the time. Nineteen sixty-eight to be exact, the decors and sets were absolutely beautifully done and have stood the test of time.
Here are a few of my favorite sets from famous scenes in The Graduate.
OMG that coat…sorry back to the sets
More of Mrs. Robinson’s Bar….that would be a great name for a bar!!
Even the hotel room was classy!
Probably because it was filmed at the historic Ambassador Hotel. Sadly, it’s no longer there.
Mrs. Robinson’s foyer. Pretty swanky.
Benjamin Braddock’s house wasn’t too bad either.
The Braddock’s Back Yard
Mrs. Robinson’s Manse…nice digs, why did she need to drink and have affairs?
Elaine’s room. Love her portrait!
One last shot of the bar for the road!
