You know an unmarried couple is heading upstairs and Then when they're up there I mean it quickly goes to black but just like their initial and he dislike awkwardly puts his hand on her and just stands there and then walks away. And it's so cringe. Grinchey ed will. Apparently Dustin Hoffman. Felt very uncomfortable about that too and so he walked away laughing trying to cover it up and that's why he did did that in hit his head on the wall but in Bancroft just kept rolling so the scene ended up making it into the movie. Yeah that there's other moments like like that were totally born out of strange ways like The other thing that Benjamin would do is as little mannerism was when he would exhale when he was nervous like he makes us weird sound you know and that was something that Dustin Hoffman actually did because he was trying to mimic his brother so it like the director was really interesting. Like Kinda the conversation's they had about these different friend scenes and he was asking him questions. And there's interview that I found For the talk about it but the director was like so you know who someone that you emulate that you care about. He said my brother said okay. What does he do when he is nervous? Or when he's upset and so doesn't often starts mimicking that and it's like this breathing and he said okay. Now just go with that but south thinking about your brother and then that weird noise came out and director loved it and used it throughout the film all right so kind of cool is little baxter is about how they make it in but yeah I. I can't believe that the the banging his head against the wall was so weird and then Mrs Robinson is just like smoking a cigarette like nothing can faze her And they continue their affair through the summer and his parents start asking questions though they never are catch on basically. Where do you go every night? And why are you doing nothing with your life. What about graduate school? Why don't you call up Elaine Robinson? Listen and ask her out on a date.
