Now, sadly, Anne Bancroft, the gorgeous actress who played so brilliantly the sexy Mrs Robinson to Dustin Hoffman’s Ben Braddock in The Graduate, has died before she could find out who the real Mrs Robinson was. In WOW’s documentary series Movies That Shook the World, Charles Webb, the guy who wrote the novel the movie was based on, reveals for the first time the true identity of the older seductress. And, yes, we’re using Bancroft, whose body has barely cooled, to promote a series on AMC. Jeez, what kind of people are we? People who believe no death should be in vain, that’s who. But we’re still ashamed. Series starts in July. Oh, and check out Bancroft in The Pumpkin Eater, Jack Clayton’s extraordinary 1964 film.
The German site Mayweather has this nice post.
We can tear up with the best of them.
