Pardon Me (Children Dancing at a Party) The Saturday Evening Post, January 26, 1918 oil on canvas, 23 x 19 in. Collection of George Lucas Pardon Me is a classic narrative of adolescent embarrassment. Apart from the clothing, the incident might well have taken place anywhere or any time. As Steven Spielberg remarked, "It is a scene of innocent humor---something we've all done when we were younger. . . . Rockwell was extolling the virtues of simple values and simple moments."
"E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial" (1982). A meek and alienated little boy finds a stranded extraterrestrial. He has to find the courage to defy the authorities to help the alien return to its home planet. Henry Thomas, Drew Barrymore and Peter Coyote.
Graduation (Boy with a Teacher), THE SATURDAY EVENING POST, June 26, 1926 ~ The round glasses and parted hair of the boy in Graduation resemble caricatures Rockwell drew of himself as an adolescent.
