Is anyone else old enough to remember that movie?

1. Who was the male star - who got his start with this movie?

2. Who was the woman who played the mother who seduced this young male star?

3. There's a famous line when the father of this young man's girlfriend speaks to him about the future. It's just one word - but meant to tell this character where he should look to find his future fortune. What's the word?

I probably remember it from the vantage point of the age I was when I saw it - but it was one of the GREAT movies!

Nope, not a recollection. I think I'm old enough, just haven't seen it.

If it helps, I think the seducing lady was married to Mel Brooks.

4. What was the name of her character?

5. Her name is used in the musical score for the movie. "Here's to you, Mrs. ???????" Who were the singing duo that made the record?

Anne Bancroft played Mrs. Robinson, and the song was famously sung by Simon and Garfunkel. I don't think remember if the first name of the character is ever said. No recollection of a one word direction to the future for Dustin Hoffman's character (was his name Ben?)

Yes - the character was Ben - and it was Mr. Robinson who told him "Plastics"
