Appreciation for Anne

 A woman who was a strong actress, and who was less known than she should have been. Anne Bancroft died today at age 73 of cancer. I guess I didn't realize when I heard it on the radio today just who this was. Out of all the acting besides Demi Moore in G.I. Jane I do believe that Anne Bancroft's character was the best! She owned that bitchy politician's character! I LOVEd the interaction between her and Demi in their heated debate to get Demi's character reinstated.

I have heard of many celebrities dying. Some recently, some not. I guess her death just kind of hit me hard. I did not know half the stuff about her I know now after reading up on her since her passing. This one really saddens me.

I realized that I have actually been looking to buy a TV movie called "Homecoming" and guess who the lead in it was... Yes.. Anne Bancroft! I absolutely loved that movie. It is kind of obscure, you don't see it on the shelves anywhere. It was put out by Hallmark Entertainment. Now, unfortunately, it will be even harder to find.

Anyway, I just had to share my condolences to all who will take them and say that her death has really touched me today. I hope she is where she needs to be now.
