This was the first film I ever worked on. To have the lead in a film opposite Anne Bancroft? It was like winning the lottery. She was a tough cookie, who showed me the ropes of a set. Raised the bar for the actor I had to become just to keep up with amazing talent like hers. But behind that strong willed lady was one of the most generous actors I have ever worked with. My grandparents 50th wedding anniversary took place during the time I was filming. Anne made a video with me singing to them and doing a little dance. And gave them the back of her chair with her name on it. I think every person from that generation was a fan of Anne’s, so what a gift she gave to my grandparents and to me.
