Classic Movie Clip Of The Day: Ben Gets A Room

Recent college graduate Ben (Dustin Hoffman) meets his neighbor, Mrs. Robinson (Anne Bancroft), at a hotel for the first of their many trysts. He's a bit nervous.

Great scene from a great movie.


  1. "I want you to know how much I appreciate this, really." hahaha!

    I never understood why Mrs. Robinson would be attracted to Benjamin in the first place. I'd think she would prefer to be with someone more experienced who knows what he's doing.

    Also, I find it a little amusing that the jacket she has on looks like cheetah or leopard skin--not quite a cougar, but definitely in the same family. :-D

  2. Excellent film clip choice! Especially given the CTOTD. Although the "mom" in the tattoo looks more like Sophia Petrillo from "Golden Girls" than Anne Bancroft.

    Daisy, I used to be mystified by Mrs. Robinson's attraction to Benjamin, too, but the older I get, the more I understand it. :)

  3. Wow - haven't seen this in years. I used to think Mrs. Robinson was absolutely ancient. Now, not so much. And how old was Dustin Hoffman? Sixteen? Yikes.

  4. Buck Henry is such a standout in this movie, as he always is.
