Madeline Kahn has always been one of my favorite actresses. I mean, she’s a total package. This biography was researched very well, and you can tell the author loves his subject. The whole thing has a melancholy feel to it, and so it wasn’t exactly an entertaining read, but it was a good read. It seems that Madeline Kahn was never quite satisfied with her acting/roles, and she didn’t understand why people thought she was funny. That part alone is heartbreaking.

It’s a good book and many of Madeline’s costars and directors supply some good insight into her life.
