Here's to you, Mrs. Robinson.

And that's how you narrate a story.

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

You can do it Otto! You can do it Otto!

Make this spare, I'll give you free gelato!

Then back to my place where I will get you blotto!

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. :-)

From the way the commentary sounded, I think the show probably barely made the hour, padded out just by interviews and face time in the losers' lounge. Malcolm Jamal-Warner just devoured the table whole.
