News Corp. appeared tantalizingly close to winning the support of enough members of the Bancroft family to succeed in its bid to acquire Dow Jones & Co., but not close enough to conclusively predict victory. Family members and trusts representing more than 30 percent of the shareholder vote, enough to put the deal over the top, indicated to their lawyers that they would support the bid, but some of them had not delivered signed commitments and could back away, according to people briefed on the matter, who were granted anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss it.

Ann Bancroft is a class act. Just ask anyone who comes in contact with this glamorous-looking woman, who is hereshooting scenes for the Jodie Foster movie "Home for the Holidays."One of the latest close encounters with Bancroft happened to Russ Margo, who entertains guests in in the lounge of Da Mimmo's restaurant in Little Italy, five nights a week. Russ tells me that one night he heard that the actress was having dinner upstairs and soon would come down to have her photo taken with Marianne and Mimmo Cricchio, the restaurant owners.

The Mel Brooks Collection [20th Century Fox] $100 You still laugh like crazy when you watch the Spanish Inquisition song-and-dance number in Mel Brooks' 1981 pastiche, History of the World: Part I. But these days, you also feel an ever-so-faint chill creeping up your back. Sure, Brooks got away with such roughhousing 25 years ago. By that time, it was what people expected from him. But if real-life religious intolerance ever again reached the extremes of 16th-century Spain, Brooks would be tossed in irons for his cheekiness.

These days, the scenario of a neglected wife having an affair with the son of her husband's law partner would be too tame for a TV talk show. It would make it to the air only if the host tried to help the woman work things out after her daughter ran away with her lover. Back in 1967, the script to The Graduate treated its now-famous wandering wife, Mrs. Robinson, as a predatory comic monster. But thanks to Anne Bancroft, who died Monday, she became the most sensual and complex character in the movie -- and its least-dated achievement.

NEW YORK - Anne Bancroft, who won an Academy Award for her portrayal of Helen Keller's teacher in 1962's The Miracle Worker, but cleared a place for herself in pop-culture history five years later as the alluring, embittered Mrs. Robinson in The Graduate, has died. She was 73. She died of cancer Monday at Mount Sinai Hospital in Manhattan, John Barlow, a spokesman for her husband, writer-director- comedian Mel Brooks, said yesterday. Throughout a career that spanned the last half of the 20th century, Ms. Bancroft won respect from both her peers and the public as one of the most versatile and resourceful actors of her generation.
