Happy Birthday Madeline Kahn (1942 - 1999)


Happy Birthday to one of the funniest women of all time. Madeline Kahn who starred in such great comedies like What's Up Doc? (1972) a great tribute to screwball comedies; Young Frankenstein (1974); Blazing Saddles (1974) as Lili Von Shtupp in a hilarious send-up of Marlene Dietrich; High Anxiety (1977) a spoof of Hitchcock films and The Cheap Detective (1978) a spoof of private detective films. She was truly one of a kind.

I adore Madeline Kahn she was brilliant. I die laughing watching her in the Mel Brooks films she made. Kahn was fantastic in all her films she made acting look effortless.
