Cat. #0015827: MADELINE KAHN

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Uncommon vintage 8x10-inch color portrait, boldly signed with her name alone in black felt-tip pen in the late 1980s or early 1990s. In good condition. Before her untimely death of ovarian cancer at the age of 57, talented comic actress Madeline Kahn was unforgettable as Trixie Delight in Paper Moon (1973), Jenny Hill in The Adventure of Sherlock Holmes' Smarter Brother (1974), an El Sleezo patron in The Muppet Movie (1979), Mrs. White in Clue (1985), Gussie Mausheimer in An American Tail (1986), and Lola Hopper in Betsy's Wedding (1990). She is perhaps best loved for her numerous collaborations with Mel Brooks, playing the Marlene Dietrich send-up Lili von Shtupp in Blazing Saddles (1974), Elizabeth in the horror-themed Young Frankenstein (1974), Victoria Brisbane in High Anxiety (1977), and Empress Nympho in History of the World: Part I (1981).
