Biography

The Bronx, New York City, New York, USA
Anne Bancroft was born on September 17, 1931 in the Bronx, New York, the daughter of Italian-American parents Michael Italiano (1906-2001), a dress pattern maker, and Mildred DiNapoli (1908-2010), a telephone operator. She made her cinema debut in Don't Bother to Knock (1952) in 1952 and over the next five years appeared in a lot of undistinguished movies as a supporting actress (like, for example, Gorilla at Large (1954) and The Girl in Black Stockings (1957)). By 1957, she had grown dissatisfied with the state of her career, left Hollywood and spent the next five years on Broadway. Read more...
