Where Were You in '62?
A couple of high school grads spend one final night cruising the strip with their buddies before they go off to college.
Editor's Note
Set in 1962; Produced and released in 1973.

AMERICAN GRAFFITI presents a powerful collage of youth on the brink of maturity just before the assassination of J.F.K.. Based on George Lucas's own teenage hot-rodding days in Modesto, California, this brilliant, bittersweet comedy inspired numerous other productions, including the long-running TV series HAPPY DAYS. Lucas's second feature film (following THX 1138), AMERICAN GRAFFITI contains an early screen appearance by Harrison Ford, who would figure heavily in the director's next movie, the sci-fi epic STAR WARS. The film follows one night in the lives of several recently graduated high school students. The genial Steve (Ron Howard) prepares to leave for college the next day, and Laurie (Cindy Williams), his girlfriend, is upset by his impending departure. Laurie's brother, Curt (Richard Dreyfuss), the class intellectual, is also slated for college, but he has serious doubts about his future. Also included here are the hopeless nerd (Charles Martin Smith) and the eternally cool drag racer, John (Paul LeMat), who feels pressure to live up to his reputation. A nostalgic feeling is evoked in seeing the teenagers cruising in their hot rods, eating at Mel's Diner, and listening to Wolfman Jack spin the latest hits, with the camera jumping from character to character as they each enjoy--or fret over--their last moments of summer freedom.

Expert Review American Graffiti - Blu-Ray DVD Review
By: Josh Lasser Blogcritics.org Reviews
Published on: 6/2/2011 2:58 PM
There was a moment in time when George Lucas wasn't wholly focused on a galaxy far, far away.  Produced for a minimal amount of money and with a cast that would become exceptionally well known, American Graffiti is a beautiful look at teens in small town California in the early 1960s. Rather than telling a solid story, American Graffiti is much more several different intersecting tales about a group of friends.  And, if we're being honest, even the stories told there are of a minimalist nature.  Yet, American Graffiti is still a great movie.  What makes it so isn't the fact that a fascinating tale is being woven, but much rather the fact that it provides a glimpse at a moment in America's history....read the full review
