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… :-)
