The First Time Ever Self Saw Your Face

Self was too young to see “The Graduate” when it first showed in movie theatres. By the time she actually got to see the movie, Dustin Hoffman had been famous for a couple of years. He was not a revelation to her.

But there were some actors who self was lucky enough to catch at the very beginning, and here’s a list:

Willem Dafoe, “Platoon”
Gene Hackman, “The French Connection”
Al Pacino, “The Godfather”
Keanu Reeves, “River’s Edge”
Charlie Sheen, “Platoon”
Meryl Streep, “The Deer Hunter”
Christopher Walken, “The Deer Hunter”

And here are a couple of actors who left self cold on the first couple of sightings, and the vehicles where said actors revealed something that endeared them to self’s heart forevermore:

Jason Bateman, “The Kingdom”
Adrian Brody, “King Kong”
Nicolas Cage, “Moonstruck”
Robert Downey, Jr., “Ironman”
Jennifer Garner, “The Kingdom”
Ethan Hawke, “Gattaca”
Scarlett Johansson, “The Other Boleyn Girl”
Angelina Jolie, “A Mighty Heart”
Andie McDowell, “Sex, Lies and Videotape”
