Anne Bancroft

Thursday, 17th September 1931 - Monday, 6th June 2005
The Bronx, New York City, NY
USA


Generally severe American actress, but look at that varied filmography! 84, Charing Cross Road & The Graduate are probably my favs, but excellence abounds. Pity she and Mel didn't do more comedy together. RIP.
