Product description

Product Description

In early Sixties, pre-Vietnam America, a bunch of teens go cruising in their hometown after the annual school dance. Steve (Ron Howard) and Curt (Richard Dreyfuss) are meant to be leaving for college the next day, but Steve's girlfriend Laurie (Cindy Williams) doesn't want him to go and Curt is also beginning to have doubts. Meanwhile, class nerd Terry (Charles Martin Smith) has an unexpected encounter with an older woman, and John (Paul LeMat), the owner of the fastest car on the street, tries to get rid of a precocious 13-year-old he has mistakenly picked up. George Lucas' second feature was an enormous box-office hit and heralded a wave of rock'n'roll nostalgia, inspiring the TV series 'Happy Days'. Harrison Ford also appears in an early role.

From Amazon.co.uk

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
