  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Hello Mrs. Robinson. The Graduate, based on the novel by Charles Webb, garnered seven Academy Award

DVD Picture:
The new anamorphically enhanced 2.34:1 DVD is a marked improvement over the previous release, with a much cleaner print, almost completely void of dirt and specks. Detail has been improved slightly, but still has a somewhat soft, dated look. Fleshtones look slightly more rosy and natural, and black levels are still solid. Edge enhancement is negligible.
