Best known for her Oscar-nominated roles in the smash hits Paper Moon and Blazing Saddles, Madeline Kahn (1942–1999) was one of the most popular comedians of her time—and one of the least understood. She turned out as reserved and refined as her characters were bold and bawdy. Almost a Method actor in her approach, she took her work seriously. When crew members and audiences laughed, she asked why—as if they were laughing at her—and all her life she remained unsure of her gifts. William V. Madison examines Kahn’s film career, including not only her triumphs with Mel Brooks and Peter Bogdanovich, but also her overlooked performances in The Adventure of Sherlock Holmes’ Smarter Brother and Judy Berlin, her final film. Her work in television—notably her sitcoms—also comes into focus. New...
Many of the earliest canonical novels—including Defoe's Moll Flanders and Roxana and Richardson's Pamela and Clarissa—were written by men who assumed the first-person narrative voice of women. What does it mean for a man to write his "autobiography" as if he were a woman? What did early novelists have to gain from it, in a period when woman's realm was devalued and woman's voice rarely heard in public? How does the male author behind the voice reveal himself to readers, and how do our glimpses of him affect our experience of the novel? Kahn maintains that the answers to such questions lie in the nature of "narrative transvestism"—her term for the device through which a male author directs the reader's interpretation by temporarily abandoning himself to a culturally defined female voice...
We lost Madeline Kahn , a farceur extraordinaire, far too soon. But thank goodness for that marvelously mad Mel Brooks for letting her loose in a quartet of some of the most gut-bustingly funny female performances in cinematic history. Kahn, who passed away at age 57 in 1999, would have celebrated her 76th birthday on September 29. What better way to salute her legacy on the big screen than to recall the two-time Oscar nominee’s 12 greatest movies, ranked from worst to best. Our photo gallery above includes “Blazing Saddles,” “What’s Up, Doc. HISTORY OF THE WORLD, PART 1 (1981). There is a reason that there never was a “Part 2. ” This slapdash episodic burlesque of eras past ranging from the Stone Age to the Spanish Inquisition finds Kahn as Empress Nympho in the Roman Empire segment. Her lascivious ruler spews various double-entendres for male appendages and such while eyeing up male candidates for her orgies. Says Shecky Greene ’s Marcus Vindictus: “Oh Nympho, I would do anything to gain your favor. What bait must I use to catch your love. “ Her reply. “Ah, but the servant waits, while the ‘master’ baits. But it has since garnered a cult following, partly because of Kahn’s insane take on Mrs. White (dressed up like a black widow, including a helmet-like wig). Many have noted that her ad-libbed meltdown when she admits to killing her husband’s lover, Yvette the maid, is nuttier than Cracker Jack, as a spasm of words pour out of her mouth: “I hated her, so much … it, it the flam-flames. Flames, on the side of my face, breathing … heaving breaths. ” But I prefer her statement when she is queried about the suspicious disappearance ofher five spouses: “Husbands should be like Kleenex: soft, strong and disposable. AT LONG LAST LOVE (1975). Peter Bogdanovich tried to capture the song-and-dance magic of 1930s MGM musicals, but the result fell flatter than a 2-ton pancake. But while Burt Reynolds and Cybill Shepherd were far from the second coming of Fred and Ginger, Kahn as stage star Kitty O’Kelly was in her element as a trained singer with experience in Broadway musicals. Her rendering of an obscure Cole Porter song, “Find Me a Primitive Man,” with a chorus line of clumsy cavemen and a faux Tarzan isn’t great art, but she can move and carry a tune — and her tipsy trilling of the torch song, “Down in the Depths,” is... THE ADVENTURE OF SHERLOCK HOLMES’ SMARTER BROTHER (1975). Gene Wilder made his directorial and script-writing debut while starring in this spoof as Sigerson Holmes, the younger and, apparently, brighter brother of Arthur Conan Doyle ’s master... He was smart enough to borrow some of Brooks’ favorite players, including Marty Feldman and Kahn, who gets to utter this immortal line tied to a letter that her stage performer, Jenny Hill, penned: “It said I wanted to touch his winkle. ” But the scene that has gone down in infamy is when Kahn, Wilder and Feldman all start bouncing crazily about in Sigerson’s chambers, their hands imitating paws, to “The Kangaroo Hop. THE MUPPET MOVIE (1979). Kahn is part of a passel of actors doing cameo duty in the first of eight films featuring the Muppets, as Kermit decides to travel to Los Angeles to pursue a career in show business. She makes the most of her 31-second role as the so-called El Sleezo Patron who is encased in a sparkly red dress while she enjoys a beverage at the bar. Kermit sidles up next to her and, in her Lily Von Shtupp voice from “Blazing Saddles,” she looks at him and says, “Hello, sailor. Buy me a drink. ” Kermit, ever the innocent, replies, “I’m not a sailor. ” Getting frustrated, she answers back, “Cut the small talk and buy me a drink. ” At this point, Telly Salvalas comes over and tells Kermit to leave her alone. Kahn says, “It’s twue, he touched me. ” Salvalas suggests she go wash because she will get warts – and off she goes. THE CHEAP DETECTIVE (1978). Consider this a cheap knock-off of a Brooks-ian lampoon of such Humphrey Bogart classics as “The Maltese Falcon,” “The Big Sleep” and “Casablanca. ” Peter Falk is tough-talking Lou Peckinpaugh, the 1940s gumshoe in question, who is charged.
