‘Graduate’ reunion at Acad

Restored version of classic pic bows for cast

HOLLYWOOD — Thirty-eight years after the original release of “The Graduate,” a restored print unspooled Friday at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences.

Screening was preceded by a reception and followed by a panel, introduced by the Acad’s Sid Ganis, emceed by critic David Ansen and featuring star Katharine Ross, producer Lawrence Turman and director Mike Nichols, who discounted the idea of ever releasing a director’s cut DVD.

“There would be 10 minutes of boredom to restore,” Nichols said. “There’s a reason you cut it out in the first place.”
