About the Book:  In the first biography to cover the entire scope of Bancroft’s life and career, Douglass K. Daniel brings together interviews with dozens of her friends and colleagues, never-before-published family photos, and material from film and theater archives to present a portrait of an artist who raised the standards of acting for all those who followed. Daniel reveals how, from a young age, Bancroft was committed to challenging herself and strengthening her craft. Her talent (and good timing) led to a breakthrough role in Two for the Seesaw, which made her a Broadway star overnight. The role of Helen Keller’s devoted teacher in the stage version of The Miracle Worker would follow, and Bancroft also starred in the movie adaption of the play, which earned her an Academy Award. She went on to appear in dozens of film, theater, and television productions, including several movies directed or produced by her husband, Mel Brooks. Anne Bancroft: A Life offers new insights into the life and career of a determined actress who left an indelible mark on the film industry while remaining true to her art.

    I’m very torn, I love her movie To Be or Not to Be with her husband, the great Mel Brooks, but The Miracle Worker is definitely my favorite. I have the sentimental value of the show after directing and playing James Keller a few years ago in High School.

    • Annmarie Gatti says:

      Both wonderful choices! And how wonderful that you were able to work on a production of The Miracle Worker! Thanks so much for entering and Good Luck 🙂

    I’d have to pick The Graduate as my favorite Bancroft film. Her interactions with Dustin Hoffman are wonderful and the film was so right for its time. In my opinion, very few modern movies have had the same amount of impact. Thanks for the chance to win this excellent book.

    • Annmarie Gatti says:

      I thoroughly enjoy that movie every time I see it. Great performances… Thanks so much for entering and Good Luck 🙂

    I have watched only ‘the graduate’ and was blown away by the beauty and acting skills of AnneBancroft. Would love to learn about the person away from the screen.

    • Annmarie Gatti says:

      Yes, she did such a great job in that film (among others of course too)! Thanks so much for entering and Good Luck 🙂

  4. Vickie L Gleason says:

    I would say The Graduate because it was the first film I saw her in that I really knew who she was and I thought her performance was outstanding.
