Most of All You've Got to Hide it From the Kids

It's hard to believe that Dustin Hoffman is seventy-one years old today. In his long and accomplished reign as one of Hollywood's serious actors, he has played many a memorable role and won two Oscars. My favorite, though, is still The Graduate, in which he played the young and confused Benjamin Braddock, who is famously seduced by Anne Bancroft's Mrs. Robinson.

In honor of Hoffman and that great role, I offer a You Tube link to a great song: Mrs. Robinson, by Simon and Garfunkel (sung at a reunion concert).
