Madeline Kahn
Dedicated to actress and singer, Madeline Kahn. She is perhaps best known for the films she did with Mel Brooks' 'Blazing Saddles' and Peter Bogdanovich's 'Paper Moon', she was Oscar nominated for both roles. Madeline had an opera soprano singing voice and was on Broadway in shows like Two by Two, On the Twentieth Century, Born Yesterday, and The Sisters Rosensweig where she won the Tony for being 'Gorgeous'. She's one of the great underrated talents that was gone too soon. I hope you enjoy the blog! Visit often for updates.

Happy Birthday Madeline Kahn!
(September 29, 1942 - December 3, 1999)

She was really a great gift to us all. … I saw art [in her], not just funny. But I saw a person who was gifted with art. I don’t think there’s anything that Madeline Kahn couldn’t do. Nobody could approach the magnificence and wonder of Madeline Kahn.

-Mel Brooks
