One Of Our Best Actresses Has Died

Anne Bancroft, one of our finest actresses, died today of cancer at age 73. I hate that. I won't make a list of her acting roles—you can Google it for yourself—but I'll bet that nearly everyone who's ever liked movies at all know two or three movies that she was great in! I recommend her role as the writer Helene Hanff opposite Anthony Hopkins in 84, Charing Cross Road. It's a movie for people whose taste is not limited to action films.
