The Graduate is one of the most groundbreaking films of the 1960s decade. Dustin Hoffman starred in this movie and actually had to drop out of The Producers to be in The Graduate. Even Hoffman did not think he was right for the role, as he thought Robert Redford was a better fit. However, he took the job! The famous song "Here's to you, Mrs. Robinson" is of course from this film, as the older woman pursuing Hoffman's character is named Mrs. Robinson. In real life, their relationship is much less creepy, because even though their characters are a few decades apart in age, the actors were only six years apart. This film grossed a whopping $104.9 million.
