Cloris Leachman

Happy Birthday to

Cloris Leachman

85 today

Even in her mid eighties Cloris' career is still going strong, thanks at least in part to a lucrative stint on "Dancing with the Stars" and her recent chucklesome performance in New York, I Love you. Of course none of the films she has coming up in any way appeal to me, but it's good to see there's plenty of work out there for this clever character actress.

Ben--So funny that I wrote a piece on her on Saturday, not having yet seen your excellent post, and not knowing it was her birthday!

I appreciate your comments on her...

(An earlier comment I sent you didn't print for some reason...)

Ooh, weird synchronicity.

Such a great actress, and you're right about that scene in Last Picture Show, incredibly powerful.
