Never-before-seen screen tests of the cast
One hot summer night in Northern California, a radio rock 'n' roll show sets the rhythm as four high school
buddies on the brink of adulthood begin to realize that things can't stay the same. Steve (Ronny Howard),
bound for college, wants his Sock Hop honey (Cindy Williams) to give him a little lovin' to remember
her by. Curt (Richard Dreyfuss) searches for the beautiful blonde he glimpsed in a passing T-Bird.
Terry (Charlie Martin Smith) needs to get some "brew" for the sexy gal (Candy Clark) he's aiming
to please. And Big John (Paul Le Mat), the local drag champion, roams the avenues in his deuce coupe,
ready to take on the new road racer (Harrison Ford) who wants to be king of the dragsters.
A sentimental tribute to the innocent days of cruising, bitchin' cars, after-dark petting and rock 'n' roll -
filled with autobiographical details from the teenage years of director George Lucas - American
Graffiti launched Lucas' amazing career, landed high on the list of all-time moneymakers and reaped
five Academy Award® nominations, including Best Picture, Best Screenplay
and Best Director.
