DVD_TV: The Graduate

The April 10th episode of DVD_TV: Enhanced Version, AMC's original movie trivia show, was The Graduate. The show was chock-full of behind-the-scenes stories and little-known facts. If you were watching, you found out why Graduate author Charles Webb views his famous book as a curse, why director Mike Nichols and screenwriter Buck Henry envisioned Robert Redford, Doris Day and Ronald Reagan as the 'Braddock' family when they wrote the script, why Dustin Hoffman thought he was going to be fired the whole time he was making the movie, and much, much more!

Check out the supplementary articles that AMC posted for DVD_TV's enhancement of The Graduate.
