I saw Cloris Leachman in Spanglish

Last edited Sat May 25, 2019, 01:59 PM - Edit history (2)

She is terrific. The best actor in the movie. She plays a grandmother living with her daughter and she is always drinking wine. She hasn't had many juicy roles, but her work has always captivated me. I loved her in Mary Tyler Moore show, Malcolm in the Middle. She is 93 years old and still making movies. I am in awe of her stamina. I read that Marlon Brando tried to go after her, but she knew he was trouble and stayed away from him.







Unfortunately the best scene I could find her in is in French

2. I thought the whole cast was great...

I thought Tea Leoni was brilliant. She made that movie.

3. That said...

I love Cloris Leachman as well. The Last Picture Show stands out of course.

4. She's very funny as Nurse Diesel...

in Mel Brooks' parody of Alfred Hitchcock movies "High Anxiety".






She and Harvey Korman are terrific.

9. She was in a Twilight Zone episode posted on DU yesterday.

It is called It's a Good Life about an evil 6 year old who has special powers which he uses to get whatever he wants.

13. She was a neighbor of Judy Garland's

This was during a particularly bad time in Miss Garland's battle with her addictions and Cloris basically raised Judy's three children, making sure they were feed and safe...Liza, Lorna and Joey have all spoken very fondly of her kindness to them and their mother.

14. Does anyone remember

Her one season playing the mom on Lassie? I'll never forget her death scene in Kiss Me Deadly, acting with just her voice and her legs.

15. Someone I Touched (1975)

Movie of the week: Cloris is pregnant (Never mind that she is 49 at the time and has no belly bump ) Movie is pure camp, but the LA Health Dept said drew awareness to syphilis testing.



She sings the theme song too (poor quality probably recorded from someone's TV)
