TMI: Today’s Movie Info
It’s well known that the iconic poster from The Graduate (1967) featured not the stockinged legs of the movie’s star Anne Bancroft, but rather those of a 27 year old model named Linda Gray. Of course, Ms. Gray went on to star as Sue Ellen Ewing in the hit TV series “Dallas”. What’s not common knowledge is Ms. Gray’s claim that she was paid a whopping $25 for the modeling job that produced the poster. Ironically, years later, she went on to star as Mrs Robinson in the London stage version of “The Graduate”.
