No Sleep 'Til Bafflegab!
Today is Anne Bancroft’s birthday. She was one of the best actors of her generation, always best remembered as Mrs Robinson in The Graduate (and how slippery, lonely, vicious, sad, and sympathetic she was too), but she made many other well-known and well-loved films, including The Pumpkin Eater, The Prisoner Of Second Avenue, The Slender Thread, The Elephant Man, and The Miracle Worker (for which she won the Academy Award for Best Actress). She was married for 40 years until her death to comedy legend Mel Brooks.
