annebancroftAnne Bancroft (1931–2005)

Born: September 17, 1931 in The Bronx, New York City, New York, USA
Died: June 6, 2005 (age 73) in New York City, New York, USA

Married to: Mel Brooks (5 August 1964 – 6 June 2005) (her death) (1 child)
Martin May (1 July 1953 – 13 February 1957) (divorced)

When [Mel Brooks] told his Jewish mother he was marrying an Italian girl, she said: “Bring her over. I’ll be in the kitchen – with my head in the oven”.

[of her Mrs. Robinson role in The Graduate (1967)] Film critics said I gave a voice to the fear we all have: that we’ll reach a point in our lives, look around and realize that all the things we said we’d do and become will never come to be – and that we’re ordinary.
