This Academy Award® nominated classic, directed by George Lucas and produced by Francis Ford Coppola, features the coming of age of four teenagers on their last summer night before college. Rediscover drag racing, drive-ins and Inspiration Point in this nostalgic look back at the early 60’s that also brings you an incredible soundtrack with the most memorable rock'n'roll tracks of the era. Starring Harrison Ford, Richard Dreyfuss, Ron Howard and Charlie Martin Smith, American Graffiti captures the heart and spirit of America’s last age of innocence.
Here's how American critic Roger Ebert described the unique and lasting value of George Lucas' 1973 box-office hit, American Graffiti: "[It's] not only a great movie but a brilliant work of historical fiction; no sociological treatise could duplicate the movie's success in remembering exactly how it was to be alive at that cultural instant." The time to which Ebert and the film refers is the summer of 1962, and American Graffiti captures the look, feel, and sound of that era by chronicling one memorable night in the lives of several young Californians on the cusp of adulthood. (In essence, Lucas was making a semi-autobiographical tribute to his own days as a hot-rod cruiser, and the film's phenomenal success paved the way for Star Wars.) The action is propelled by the music of DJ Wolfman Jack's rock & roll radio show--a soundtrack of pop hits that would become as popular as the film itself. As Lucas develops several character subplots, American Graffiti becomes a flawless time capsule of meticulously re-created memory, as authentic as a documentary and vividly realised through innovative use of cinematography and sound. The once-in-a-lifetime ensemble cast members inhabit their roles so fully that they don't seem like actors at all, comprising a who's who of performers--some of whom went on to stellar careers--including Ron Howard, Richard Dreyfuss, Harrison Ford, Cindy Williams, Mackenzie Phillips, Charles Martin Smith, Candy Clark, and Paul Le Mat. A true American classic. --Jeff Shannon, Amazon.com --This text refers to the DVD edition.

The storyline is simple to follow, it's the last day before the kids go off to College/Uni in the late 50's and it's time to cruise the streets, grab a burger, fall in love with the girl at the traffic lights and convince your girlfriend that separation from each other isn't going to cause a problem, or is it? All entertaining stuff. However, watching it a second time it's lost a lot of its magic for me which I guess is an age thing! I consider it to be a classic and I'm not disappointed I have it in the collection.
If you've never seen it, I'd recommend you do certainly if the 50's are of interest. The cars are fab, and while these young guys we're impressing their girls with their hot rods (if you pardon the expression, back here in Blighty you were luck to have 4,pram wheels and a piece of wood and string!
Good entertaining movie.
As a collection it's good value, so I don't regret buying it, just for the original movie which is a classic, but I don't really rate the second movie at all. Sorry George Lucas.
And a soundtrack to die for...
