I liked her in PRISONER OF 2ND AVE. In her early 70's? DAMN! Still too
young, she will be missed.

Yes she was good in that. I also like her in the 1983 "TO BE OR NOT TO
BE".

For people who grew up in the 60s, Anne will be remembered always and
forever as Mrs. Robinson in "The Graduate." She played Dustin Hoffman's
lover, this despite the fact that she was married. Dustin, playing
confused college grad Benjamin Braddock, is trying to sort out his life
post-college. Anne represented both the decent, straight-laced, uptight
America of the mid-60s and its dark underbelly. She lives with her
husband and daughter Elaine in a fancy, respectable LA home. Yet she
forces Elaine (and Benjy's new lover) to marry some perfectly respectable
man she doesn't love- just as Mrs R did two decades earlier (Mrs R
married HER husband because she had become pregnant, not because she
loved him- more keeping up of appearances). This goes some to explain why
she drank a lot.
This movie connected with audiences everywhere, especially with young
adults who were becoming disillusioned with authority, eg, the military
and its drafting of young men to fight and die in a war no one
understood. Mrs Robinson represented that corrupt authority, appearing
perfectly normal on the outside, but rotten and rancid on the inside. No
wonder that Elaine, played by Katharine Ross, says to Mrs R at one point
that she would never want to be like her mother, ie, forever trapped in a
loveless, juiceless arrangement with a man she hadn't slept in the same
room with for years.
Anne Bancroft was nominated once again for an Oscar, while Dustin Hoffman
got the springboard role he had been looking for.

RIP, Anne, and condolences to Mel Brooks, your husband.

PS Great story in the obit I read in the newspaper. Mel told his Jewish
mother that he would bring his Italian sweetheart home to meet her. His
mother said that she would be in the kitchen- with her head in the oven.
