I was a little surprised that nobody mentioned Mel Brooks as surviving Anne Bancroft in the mentions of her death that I heard-- but I'm glad that David Edelstein does, and I'm pleased that he mentions her role in Brooks' remake of "To Be Or Not To Be"-- I agree that she was as sexy in that as she was playing the architypical "older woman" 15 years earlier. If Brooks' "To Be" has any reason to be I think it exists to make exactly that point-- isn't my wife funny and sexy? As an homage to Anne Bancroft the movie works better than any of the roles she will probably be remembered for.
