Proper Tribute

"The Producers" creator Mel Brooks threw a private memorial for his wife, Anne Bancroft ("The Graduate"), at the St. James Theater on Monday night.

Among the 100 guests were Paul Simon, who played a solo acoustic version of "Mrs. Robinson," and Alan Alda, who spoke about his friendship with Bancroft, a Hamptons neighbor. Nathan Lane, Matthew Broderick and Patty Duke also paid their respects. As usual, Brooks had the last word. "If any of you are grieving, keep it to yourself," he quipped. "I don't want to hear it."
