A fantastic classic...'The Graduate' and writer/director/actor Buck Henry

If you've never seen some of the old movies like 'The
Graduate,' 'What's Up Doc?,' and 'The Owl and the Pussycat,' maybe you should check them out.

'The Graduate,' is a classic and as I watched it I thought it may be very possible that Wes Anderson was influenced by it. Buck Henry wrote the screenplays for these movies and others. And I love each of them.

Another of my all time favorite movies is: 'Heaven Can Wait' with Warren Beatty. Buck Henry directed that and also plays the part of
The Escort in the movie which also stars Dyan Cannon and Julie Christie.

I had the great pleasure of attending a screening of 'The Graduate' this week and hearing Buck interviewed by Robert Milazzo of The Modern Film School.

Tomorrow I'll be attending the New York Film Festival and seeing Ang Lee again. 'The Life of Pi' is kicking off the festival tonight.

Next week I'll be attending the tribute to Nicole Kidman so stay tuned for more.....
