Here's to you, Mrs. Robinson by George on 8 June 2005 2:29am
 
Anne Bancroft, the woman who launched millions of adolescent daydreams, has died. Her protrayal of the sexy "older woman" who seduced Dustin Hoffman in 1967's, The Graduate, was always a little miffed at being best known as Mrs. Robinson, while her other work included an Academy Award for The Miracle Worker. She was also nominated for 4 others in a distinguished career.

Yeah, I just read it. I always thought it was interesting that she was married to Mel Brooks for 40 years. Bummer. (that she died, not that she was married to Mel Brooks)

Such a loss.

A real classy lady and died too soon. The news mad me sad.

Yep, very sad news. I had no idea she was married to Mel Brooks.

(By the way, very nice title for the thread, George!)

Sad indeed.

I loved the Graduate and couldn't help feeling like Benjamin when I first put on scuba gear (you know that bit when it's his birthday and his parents get him the stuff and the camera films 'through his mask' and you hear his breathing?)!

Great soundtrack too!! Off on a tangent here, but when we drove for a couple of weeks around Turkey about 10 years ago, we took Simon and Garfunkel with us (no, not in person!!) and sang along with them as we drove along!! Magical - but perhaps not for the poor Turks who heard us lol!!!

I was watching a program involving Mel Brooks in which she featured only the other day, and he also mentioned her on the Parkinson show. It's terribly sad and so sweet how they were married all that time. It was a shock to read this post, I had no idea before.

Yep, married to Mel Brooks. Another case of, "He makes me laugh." :^)
