"As the only full-length biography of Bancroft, this book fills a notable gap and appeals to a broad audience of film enthusiasts and others interested in popular culture. In telling the story of a woman legendary for her portrayal of Mrs. Robinson, Daniel helps us understand a formidable actress who, with grace and talent, handled the changing roles available to women."―Tracy Lucht, author of Sylvia Porter: America's Original Personal Finance Columnist

"This is an intelligent, enlightening book about one of our most gifted actresses. Daniel doesn't merely give us a rundown of Bancroft's life and career or tell plots. He offers insights, allowing us a look behind her process as an actress, delving into how she transformed herself into her characters, how she studied for them, how she brought them to life.
