A huge (and unexpected) hit for Creator/{{Universal}}, ''American Graffiti'' established Lucas's box-office bona fides, kicked the already-existing '50s nostalgia boom of TheSeventies into high gear, and provided the template for countless teen comedies to follow. The film is also notable for its EnsembleCast of soon-to-be famous young actors including Creator/RichardDreyfuss, Creator/RonHoward, Cindy Williams, Suzanne Somers, Mackenzie Phillips and Creator/HarrisonFord. Also featured is famous radio disc jockey Wolfman Jack playing a version of himself.
