About Madeline Kahn (1942 – 1999)
Madeline Kahn was born in Boston and raised in New York City. She was a comic actress, best known for her over ripe characters in Mel Brooks movies.

In 1973, Madeline Kahn was nominated for an Oscar for her performance in Paper Moon, with Ryan O'Neal, as Trixie Delight, an exotic dancer in a carnival.

Blazing Saddles (1974) was Madeline Kahn's first film with Mel Brooks, in which she played an amorous (if fatigued) cabaret singer. She was nominated for an Oscar for Best Actress in a Supporting Role.

Madeline Kahn was also in Young Frankenstein (1974), High Anxiety (1977), and History Of The World, Part I (1981), all directed by Mel Brooks. Of her experience with Brooks, Kahn quipped, "Mel Brooks is sensual with me. He treats me like an uncle. A dirty uncle."

Madeline Kahn also played in the 1985 movie, Clue, a whodunnit, based on the board game, portraying Mrs. White.

Kahn continued working in films and television, including her own show, Oh Madeline (1983-1984), Mr. President (1987-1988), and Cosby (1996-1999).

On her work as a comic actress, Madeline Kahn said, "It's acceptable for men to act the fool. When women try, they're considered aggressive and opinionated."
