My headline: "Anne Bancroft dead at 73. Now finding out whether Jesus loves her more than she would know"

/close second: "...whether heaven holds a place for those who pray"

Very sad. :(

She always gets mixed up with Katharine Ross in my head.

Agreed, in 84 Charing Cross Road she was great.

MrCheeks: Hang in there Mr. Brooks, shes in a better place now.

It's okay. Mel's a grown up. We don't have to pretend for his sake that she's in a better place. She's dead. She was in a pretty good place while she was alive. But now she's dead. That may make the world a worse place for her friends and family (and fans and admirers even), but we don't really need to pretend that there's some "better place" she's gone to, do we?

Put it in the pantry with your cupcakes...
What the fark does that mean, anyway?

A beautiful woman, a great actor. I always heard stories of what a beautiful marriage she and Mel Brooks had. My heart goes out to him.

The Miracle Worker, Elephant Man, The Graduate, Dracula: Dead and Loving It.

That's one hell of a resume.
 
2005-06-07 06:31:17 PM
Who?
 
2005-06-07 06:32:27 PM
I'd like to know a little bit about her for my files.

LOVED The Graduate, though it came out a few years before I was born.

I hear she's trying to seduce Pope John Paul II now.

/pope forgave guy who shot him...so i'm safe with that comment

Scene from The Graduate II:

"Mrs. Robinson, you're trying to zombie-fy me. Aren't you?!"

/when her death was announced on tv, I thought it was Mel who died. I almost had a heart attack. Still sad...

"Tragedy is when I cut my finger. Comedy is when I win a Tony and my wife dies."

/not really - Goodnight, Mrs. Brooks.

I certainly hope Heaven's a better place than earth.
 
2005-06-07 06:36:37 PM
Wow, I hadn't even heard she was sick. Too bad. A good actress, and from all reports, a good person too.
 
2005-06-07 06:36:50 PM
She was still hawwwwwt!

Hawwwt.

"Life is here only to be lived so that we can, through life, earn the right to death, which to me is paradise. Whatever it is that will bring me the reward of paradise, I'll do the best I can."

- Anne Bancroft, 38-23-35. (pops)

She always gave a touch of class to everything she did, even junky button pushers like GI Jane. RIP

"Benjamin."
"Yes?"
"Isn't there something you want to tell me?
"Tell you?"
"Yes."
"Well, I want you to know how much I... appreciate this."

/One of the funniest exchanges of dialogue ever committed to film.

But isn't it pretty to think so? (Sorry, Mr. Hemingway)

These things come in threes, so who's next?
 
2005-06-07 06:43:26 PM
My heart goes out to Mel Brooks (who is my idol). From what I've heard, he basically worshipped the ground she walked on, and visa-versa. As has been said before, "here's to you..."
 
2005-06-07 06:44:41 PM
Better place or not...

She was a classy lady. She was in one of the top five movies of the 1960s. She was an icon, in film and song. And she inspired a very funny man. All in all, not a bad run.

Here's to you Mrs. Robinson. (drinks)
 
2005-06-07 06:44:56 PM
Is this the same Mrs. Robinson as in the Marilyn Manson song?
 
2005-06-07 06:52:32 PM
Oh, man. I had no idea she was ill, very sad. RIP.

Bancroft became known for her willingness to assume a variety of portrayals. She appeared as Winston Churchill's American mother in TV's "Young Winston"

Sorry, has to be done:

"Everyone! Its time for my one man show, 'Winston Churchill, We Hardly Knew Ye.' Ok, Act I: I'm Winston Churchill, would you like some tea? I would because I'm Winston Churchill. Would you like a crumpet? I would because I'm Winston Churchill. Would you like to wear nickers?"
 
2005-06-07 06:56:16 PM
Damn, next year would have been their 50th anniversary. That sucks. I wonder if Mel will live until then.
From Mel's IMBD profile:

He and Anne Bancroft met on the set of a TV talk show, and Mel later paid a woman who worked on the show to tell him which restaurant Bancroft was going to eat at that night so he could "accidentally" bump into her again and strike up a conversation.

He and Bancroft married at New York City Hall, where a passer-by served as their witness.

The Graduate," has died. She was 73. She died of cancer on Monday at Mount Sinai Hospital, John Barlow, a spokesman for her husband, Mel Brooks, said Tuesday.

I thought it was John Barlow must die???

Huh? It's Barelycorn you say. Oh, ok. Nevermind everybody my mistake?

Gah last ? ignore that.

i was not aware that she was married to mel brooks... and not only that- since 1956!! that is amazing- almost 50 years!! she was definately an image of grace and beauty, and will be missed not only in the entertainment realm, but in the hearts of many- most of all- funny mel (who isn't cracking jokes right now).

Whenever some clueless fool posts something like " who? " in a thread such as this, I'm reminded of the Little Rascals episode where Spanky tells Stymie " don't show your
ignorance. "

If you don't recognize the name and yet almost everyone else on the thread does, why shout out to the whole world, " I'm an idiot? "
 
2005-06-07 07:03:27 PM
Ok, Anne Brancroft was HOT!!
In fact, she looked pretty damn good for 73!
This is really sad.
She was just on Curb Your Enthusiasm last year.

Very sad

great actress. too bad. hot, too right up until the end. and i like the fact that she liked an unattractive funnyman. class.

You're joking, right?

I came into this a little sad, but that got a smile out of me.

Bye Anne.

"Hey, how about 'Here's to You, Mrs. Fleckenstein?'"
"Yeah, you've been pitching that for an hour. It's just not a very attractive name."
"Oh, fine... I guess we're also not going with Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Lowery's Seasoning Salt."

/R.I.P.

Zylon,

It was a rhetorical question, posted after duly noting thousands staking their claim for the position FARK Village Idiot.

Sometimes I wonder who logged in for these people?
 
2005-06-07 07:10:52 PM
God bless you please, Mrs. Robinson.
 
2005-06-07 07:12:54 PM
God, I loved her and Mel last year on Curb YOur Enthusiasm, thinking that they were going to sink The Producers by putting Larry David in the lead role. And they almost succeeded. Damn that Larry David!! She was a class gal, which made her little cameo all the funnier. Whatta lady.

Her name was Anne Bancroft, not Mrs Robinson. She did a lot of other stuff and tried to shake of Mrs R.

Did anyone see her in interviews? She could be very funny. Mel Brooks must be distraught - married for over 40 years. Sad.

It's too bad that time has proven THE GRADUATE to be a superficial, facilely symbolic, overestimated relic evocative of the era's popular sentiments--and not at all its genuine Zeitgeist.

Let me be the first and only person to ever say: DRACULA: DEAD AND LOVING IT wasn't /that/ bad. Better than SPACEBALLS and MEN IN TIGHTS, surely. Appreciation of its humor is largely contingent upon a close familiarity with the idiosyncrasies and minutia of Universal's and Hammer's Dracula movies ... I'd go so far as to say it's on par with YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN, whose appropration of the thirties black-and-white Universal horror film style was more obviously an "achievement" and whose jokes were luckily mimetic, hence its much better reputation. Also, it hurts that DEAD AND LOVING IT is lumped into the "Non-NAKED GUN"-Leslie-Nielsen-spoof shiat-pile.

And I agree, she was a great actress and sexy as hell. I hope you're enjoying your return to the lost domain, Anne.
