Madeline Kahn (1942-1999) :: Day of Appreciation

As soon as you, lovely reader, determined that StinkyLulu should spend May 2008 contemplating the actresses at the edges of 1999, it quickly became clear that 'twas necessary do something special in memory of one of StinkyLulu's most treasured supporting actresses who passed away in 1999: Madeline Kahn. Thus, apropos of nothing but my enduring affection for her (today's neither Ms. Kahn's birthday nor is it the anniversary of her passing), I decided to call a special event in her memory: a day on which bloggers of all stripes might express their particular appreciations of La Kahn. The day has arrived, and the posts are rolling in. (And it's not too late -- send the link to your appreciation here -- I'll be updating throughout day.)

So I humbly welcome you to...

My quicky post is up. What it lacks in originality it makes up for in a surefire youtube embed.

I just posted my tribute to Eunice Burns, largely because no one had taken that one yet. Hope you like it!

I was actually thinking about Madeline and the appreciation day when driving home last night -- when I heard about Harvey Korman's death on the radio. Brought Blazing Saddles even more to the forefront for me.

I'm stunned that no one dove into "Clue." I would've, had I known. Thanks for this appreciation day, SL. Very nice to remember.
