Anne Bancroft


September 17, 1931 – June 6, 2005

Born Anna Maria Louisa Italiano in the Bronx, NY, Anne Bancroft was a multiple Oscar, Golden Globe, BAFTA, Emmy and Tony award winner (fake EGOT!)  Not too shabby.  She is probably best remembered for her turns as Anne Sullivan in 1962’s The Miracle Worker and the ever-seductive Mrs. Robinson opposite Dustin Hoffman in 1967’s The Graduate.

Bancroft was married to funnyman/director Mel Brooks for over 40 years.
