RIP Cloris Leachman

Yeah, you could tell from her totally believable first big screen role in Kiss Me Deadly (1955) that she was a unique actress, and headed for the big time.



I think my favorite role of hers in a Mel Brooks film was as Nurse Diesel, the bullet-bra wearing, hairy upper-lipped, cigar-smoking, S&M partner of Harvey Korman with designs on taking over the Institute for the Very, Very, Nervous:

It took me a second viewing of that to see that it was Cloris Leachman, and only after the host on TCM told the viewers. Wow, what a big debut! Even if she had a small role, she was in a lot of great movies and TV.

Back in bachelor I wrote and essay on Cloris Leachman, damn too bad, I liked her movies but I loved more The Mary Tyler Moore Show



The Adventure Starts Here!
And this thread gets resurrected on the day I start watching Raising Hope (based on the recommendation of a friend today). She's hilarious in this series.

Sounds interesting. If it's not too long, can you post it on the thread? Thanks.
