Everyone Loves: Anne Bancroft & The Graduate

Anne Bancroft – Born Anna Maria Louisa Italiano (September 17, 1931 – June 6, 2005) The first time I saw The Graduate when I was a kid I thought Anne Bancroft was incredibly old and incredibly hot. Turns out she was only 36 at the time of her most famous role as Mrs. Robinson – so she wasn’t old at all, but she sure was hot. It also happens she was incredibly talented, winning 1 Oscar (Best Actress – The Miracle Worker), 3 BAFTAs, 2 Golden Globes, 2 Tonys and 2 Emmys. Not Bad. She was also married to Mel Brooks (?) for 40 years. Her Mrs. Robinson has become iconic over the years and up until recently, (being replaced somewhat by Cougar) a euphanism for an older woman chasing a younger man. It’s also a great song by Simon & Garfunkel w/ a pretty good cover by the Lemonheads. Oh, and her son Max writes books about Zombies.
