Here's to Anne Bancroft (1931-2005) – Roger Ebert / June 8, 2005 –

"And here's to you, Mrs. Robinson / Jesus loves you more than you will know."
-- "Mrs. Robinson" by Simon and Garfunkel

Anne Bancroft, who won an Academy Award for one performance and everlasting fame for another, died Monday in New York. She was 73.

Her Oscar came for "The Miracle Worker" (1962), in which she played Annie Sullivan, the teacher who used touch to reach into the world of the blind and deaf Helen Keller. Her fame came for "The Graduate" (1967), in which she played Mrs. Robinson, a married woman who used her worldly sexuality to seduce a young college graduate (Dustin Hoffman). The name "Mrs. Robinson" became synonymous with sexy older women, not least because of the famous Simon and Garfunkel song which celebrated the character.

Miss Bancroft, who was married for more than 40 years to writer, director and comedian Mel Brooks, died in Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City. The cause of death was uterine cancer. Read more - Roger Ebert / June 8, 2005 –
