“American Graffiti” Turns 40!
Yeah, how old do you feel now?
I remember watching this movie when I was a kid, but I really didn’t have the best understanding of what it was all about. All I knew, was that Richie Cunningham and Shirley Finney were in it.
Well, actually it was Ron Howard and Cindy Williams…along with many other well-known names like Richard Dreyfus, Harrison Ford, Mackenzie Phillips, and many more.
Of course I have seen it many more times since I was a kid and I soon discovered that it was about two boys who are scheduled to leave for college in the morning. Each has his own doubts. They spend a final evening cruising the strip and have every adventure possible before dawn when they will each have to decide what they will do.
The movie is part of my personal DVD collection. Maybe I will watch it again tonight. Check out this classic scene from the movie where Mackenzie Phillips gets her revenge on a car full of girls after they plunk her with a water balloon.
