In his commentary for the 40th anniversary edition DVD, Dustin Hoffman reports that Bancroft had contracted not to do any topless scenes and was adamant when it came to the early confrontation between Mrs. Robinson and Benjamin in Elaine's bedroom. So shooting stopped while someone went out to find a stripper on Sunset Strip who was willing to do the shots as a stand-in. But the first stripper who was brought in refused to remove her pasties, so the production had to find a second woman to do the shots. See more »

What a wonderful time capsule. Not being old enough to grasp the entire "Swinging 60's" movement, I can't help but think this was pretty true to form to what was going on back then. Dustin Hoffman is of course great, but Ann Bancroft steals the movie, dominating every scene even when she's not in it. It must have been quite a risk for her to not only play an "older woman," especially in age conscious Hollywood, but also to play so much against "type." The music, the clothes, the houses all harken back to when America was discovering not every one lived like Ozzie and Harriet, and that a stiff martini could certainly loosen ones morals. The sexual energy this movie projects oozes across the screen and makes one feel like a voyeur.
