NOTES

Inducted into the Theater Hall of Fame (1992).

"She's made out of heavy-duty Bronx material. She can do anything, She could play Queen Victoria in a minute. She's a magnificent actress in every possible respect."---director Arthur Penn quoted in the Los Angeles Times, August 10, 1997.

"I'm grateful for it. It was the greatest school that one could have gone to. You learn to be concentrated and focused."---Bancroft on her work in live television, to the Los Angeles Times, August 10, 1997.

"I retire after every project. Then somehow there's always something that pulls me out of retirement ... "---Bancroft quoted in press material for the USA Network movie "Homecoming"

"I am quite surprised that with all my work, and some of it is very, very good, that nobody talks about 'The Miracle Worker.' We're talking about Mrs. Robinson. I understand the world. ... I'm just a little dismayed that people aren't beyond it yet."---Bancroft complained to a 2003 interviewer, Cnn.com, June 8, 2005.

"Her combination of brains, humor, frankness and sense were unlike any other artist. Her beauty was constantly shifting with her roles, and because she was a consummate actress she changed radically for every part."---Mike Nichols, who directed her in "The Graduate," said in a statement released by a publicist. Cnn.com, June 8, 2005.
