"The business I'm in just went out of business"
Here is The Times obituary of Anna Maria Italiano, aka Anne Bancroft, really top actress.
Incredibly the obit neglects to mention one of her bestest performances, as the wonderful wife of craazy Jack Lemmon in The Prisoner of Second Avenue and the line above is one of the bestest delivered lines in the movie business, I do reckon.
"I banged for you. Why won't you bang for me?"
I say 'incredibly' about The Times cos they are famous for their obits. But this one is flat. Still it is nice to remember all the good stuff Annie done in her career.
I never was a big fan of the Mrs Robinson stuff. Always preferred that line "Put your money in plastic, boy" or whatever. Plus the car, natch.
Anyhoo, vale a lovely lovely AmerItalian actress.
