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.

A part of her was a little nutty, me too, but a part of her was so dramatic, sincere, emotional. One time when we were filming Sherlock Holmes’ Smarter Brother I was directing and I wanted her to be very emotional at a certain point. She was lying and lying, so instead of saying ‘Come in Ms. Liar’ I said ‘Come in Ms. Whore!’ Tears coming down, she carried on, she did the scene, but the tears were coming down her cheeks. She was brilliant.
