Oh I have to say I am deeply saddened by this news, me and the mister both. We absolutely adored her, just from her role in Young Frankenstein and High Anxiety, among her many film and TV credits.

Although sheeseh..who could ever forget her stand-out performance in The Last Picture Show, 1970 as Ruth Popper, the older woman teenage boy hopper, which earned her an Oscar.

I never saw that, but I bet she was good, because she was good at everything she did.

Here she is as the scene stealing Nurse Diesel in Mel Brooks High Anxiety.
