Anne Bancroft

Another classy lady I highly admire is Anne Bancroft. Dramas and Comedies is when Anne is at her best. I think everyone will automatically think of Mrs. Robinson in The Graduate. I also loved her in Torch Song Trilogy,Heartbreakers, To Be Or Not To Be. The list goes on & on.

Here's to you, Mrs. Robinson: a big YAY (who wasn't expecting someone to say that?) She was also great in:

The Miracle Worker
Agnes of God
The Turning Point
The Elephant Man
The Pumpkin Eater

I will forever remember her as Mrs. Robinson but her other performances are truly amazing as well, especially her work in The Miracle Worker, which was astonishing.
