It was rumored that Wes Stern passed on the role of Benjamin Braddock in The Graduate (1967) because the script for this movie was floating around Hollywood. It was in development for two years, and by time it was released The Graduate was a smash hit. See more »

I first saw this movie when it came out in 1969. I was 16 at the time and totally identified with the boys in the movie (emotions, thoughts, etc.) In fact I so liked the movie at the time that I continued to remember it and most of the scenes over the next 30 years. I could not remember the title but remembered the name of Wes Stern and so I kind of watched for it off and on over the years to see if it would appear on TV.
Anyway I watched it for the first time in 30 years this morning on Showtime. What a treat and what a rush of memories. A very sweet coming of age movie indeed. I guess some things never change.
