Anne Bancroft

Gina Wilhelm Actress - Anne Bancroft

"The Graduate," starring Dustin Hoffman and Anne Bancroft and directed by Mike Nichols, aired tonight at 8 p.m. on TCM. Want to know more about Anne Bancroft? Read on....

Mel Brooks recently reflected on his first meeting with the statuesque actress. She had just performed the song "Married, I Could Always Get" on "The Perry Como Show" when Brooks approached her.

“I’m Mel Brooks and I’m going to marry you,” he proclaimed. She responded, “Hey, I have your record.” It was his album with Carl Reiner, "The Two-Thousand Year Old Man."

“The album came out in 1960, and this was Feb. 5, 1961. From that day, until her death on June 5, 2005, we were glued together," Brooks recalled.
