You're trying to seduce me...


Anne Bancroft, who mesmerized an entire generation of young men in The Graduate, died today of uterine cancer. She was 73. While best known as Mrs. Robinson, she was nominated for 4 Oscars, winning in 1962 for her portrayal of Annie Sullivan in Helen Keller. Of all the amazing things about her work in The Graduate the most remarkable is this: she was only 36 years old when the movie was shot, a mere six years older than Dustin Hoffman.
