In Mem Anne Bancroft
Anne Bancroft is dead, and I will miss her. She was gorgeous, classy, pissy, imperious, hilarious and all-over divine. She was an icy WASP, and married a yiddisher comedian half her height. She, along with Myrna Loy and Lauren Bacall, formed the triumfeminate of Women I Wish Were My Mom. She was a real Hollywood leading lady, of a kind I don't believe they mint anymore. Gwyneth Paltrow will not grow up to be Anne Bancroft. No one will.
