The Pilgrims land on Plymouth Rock, the first crossword puzzle is published, "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" premieres, Gen. Patton dies, and Elvis visits Nixon at the White House, all on this day.
1967: The comedy-drama "The Graduate," starring Dustin Hoffman, Anne Bancroft and Katharine Harris, and directed by Mike Nichols, premieres in Los Angeles. The film tells the story of Benjamin Braddock (Hoffman), a recent university graduate with no well-defined aim in life, who is seduced by an older woman, Mrs. Robinson (Bancroft), and then proceeds to fall in love with her daughter Elaine (Ross). It would go on to make more than $104 million at the box office and earn seven Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture, Best Actor for Hoffman, Best Actress for Bancroft and Best Supporting Actress for Ross. It won one Oscar, Best Director for Nichols.
