Graduate RARE Embassy One Sheet movie poster 1968


The Graduate, 1968
Original Vintage EMBASSY One Sheet Movie Poster
Starring Dustin Hoffman

Seasoned collectors already know the scarcity of "The Graduate" Embassy Style A one sheet. Most of the Graduate one sheets were issued by United Artists and the studio stamp on the back says "1 Sht FOR" for foreign/international release.  This very rare Style A One Sheet pops up on the market once every several years. As a matter a fact, out of the two largest movie poster auction houses, ONLY ONE has ever been sold back in 2003!  This one is also in Excellent, Unrestored condition.   See images below including the studio stamp on back indentifying this as the original US release and NOT the International Foreign Release.

The Graduate (Embassy, 1967). One Sheet (27" X 41") .  Dustin Hoffman became an overnight sensation after appearing as Benjamin Braddock in this classic picture of the 1960s. Rebelling against the desire of his parents that he settle down and take a respectable job, Benjamin starts an illicit affair with a friend of his mother, Mrs. Robinson played by Anne Bancroft. Things start getting out of control when Benjamin starts dating Mrs. Robinson's daughter. The scenes of the older woman seducing the young and nervous man have become legendary. Although Hoffman wasn't the original choice for the part (that was Warren Beatty, and later Charles Grodin), you have to wonder how anyone else could have played the role. Posters for this title without the Academy Awards are surprisingly rare and eagerly sought after especially the ones from the Embassy release as is this one, prior to UA picking the film up. Of the two non-Oscar posters, this photo style is the more desirable.
