I thought she was great at the end of last season's "Curb Your Enthuisiasm" in a small role.

She was very funny in "To Be Or Not To Be" and very good in "Agnes of God," two movies HBO showed about six times a day way back when.

I knew this guy Mike in San Francisco who was a stand-up comedian . At one point he was driving a limo as a "day job", & happened to be chauffering Anne Bancroft.

Mike: [ making conversation ] Ms Bancroft, what brings you to San Francisco?

AB: Oh, my husband's here working on a movie.

Mike: Oh, is your husband in show business? [ he knew perfectly well who her husband was ]

AB: Uh, I'm married to Mel Brooks?

Mike: Joke.

AB: Funny.

She actually liked Mike, & requested him as her chauffer for the rest of her stay there.

I'm pretty sure that part of the secret to spending any significant amount of time with an intrinsic lunatic like Mel Brooks is to get the jokes, but not be *too* impressed with them. :-)
