Happy Birthday September 29
In Memory Of...
Madeline Kahn, born on this day in 1942.
Madeline is probably best known for her work in Mel Brooks' movies such as Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, and History Of The World Part 1. While I only saw the last one, I came to be a huge fan of hers when she starred with Bill Cosby in Cosby, his sitcom for CBS, from 1996 until her death in 1999 (the show only ran one more year afterward). Her knack for being delightfully silly and endearing at the same time made her one of the true comic legends.
