MY HIT LIST: MADELINE KAHN

Young Frankenstein
The Divine Madeline Kahn; superb comedic actress. She was possibly the funniest movie actress ever, she was mostly known for her roles in Mel Brooks' movies, in which she was a regular scene stealer. She was funny but sexy too; a killer combination. She was a good actress as well as being funny, as her Oscar nominations for a best supporting actress in Paper Moon and Blazing Saddles proved. She died in 1999 at 57 from Cancer and remains an irreplaceable comedic presence. Just watch her and enjoy her timing and chutzpah.
