From the archives: Mike Nichols' 'The Graduate'

nydailynews.com — (Originally published by the Daily News on Dec. 22, 1967. This story was written by Kathleen Carroll.) "The Graduate," the erratic, jet-age film at the Coronet and Lincoln Art, has two standout performances - one from a young actor, who looks as if the worries of the world rested on his sawed-off body, and another from a director, still new to movies, whose spit and polish technique at times borders on genius.

An unjustifiable killing
