Mr. Veedle

This is a superb performance by Lily Tomlin!
Back when the telephone company was called Ma Bell
and they were the ONLY phone company on the block.
The premise is still quite sound and the humor is
absolutely sublime, she rivals Bob Newhart when it
comes to the “One Sided Conversation”.
I played this on the show last night, great stuff…

On This Day in History

The late, great Madeline Hahn was born back in 1942!
I absolutely loved her roles in the few Mel Brooks
flicks that she starred in, superb and wonderful stuff.
This is a really iconic scene from Blazing Saddles, with
Cleavon Little is the sheriff and Madeline is Lili Von Shtupp!
There is some serious back story to this scene.
Supposedly, Mel’s wife, Anne Bancroft, put the kibosh
on some lines that Madeline was supposed to utter during
the lights out part!
It’s Twue, It’s Twue… :-)
