The Miracle Worker (Biography)

Anne Bancroft received her Oscar for playing the half-blind Annie Sullivan who waged a long battle to get the stubborn, blind and mute child (Patty Duke) to communicate with others.














About Anne Bancroft (1931 – 2005)

American leading actress who's real name was Anna Maria Italiano, Anne Bancroft was born on September 17, 1931, in The Bronx, New York. Staying close to home, she graduated from the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in Manhattan.

Formerly married and divorced to Martin May, Ann was remarried to Mel Brooks, in 1964, and remained his life partner until she lost her battle to Uterine Cancer, in 2005.

Although Anne Bancroft first started her career in television, it was only a matter of time before she moved her talent to the big screens of Hollywood and the stages of Broadway. Her cinematic debut was in 1952's "Don't Bother to Knock". The fifties marked a decade of supporting roles for Bancroft until her leading debut in "The Miracle Worker" in 1962.

Bancroft was nominated and won the award for Best Actress for her role in the film, as did her youthful costar, Patty Duke, who won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress.

Blazing a trail of notable performances thereafter, Bancroft's best work undoubtedly came in the sixties, including her nominated performances in 1964's THE PUMPKIN EATER and 1967's THE GRADUATE.

Anne Bancroft was also nominated for her roles in 1977's THE TURNING POINT and 1985's AGNES OF GOD. Her trademark move is the subtle removal of her earring before answering the telephone.
