Subject: Actresss Eileen Brennan dies at age 80

Written By: warped on 07/30/13 at 6:03 pm

Eileen Brennan, who went from musical comedy on Broadway to wringing laughs out of memorable characters in such films as "Private Benjamin" and "Clue," has died. She was 80.

Brennan's managers, Jessica Moresco and Al Onorato, said she died Sunday at home in Burbank after a battle with bladder cancer.

Sad news.

I remember her best as mean Capt. Lewis in "Private Benjamin."

She was in an earlier episode of "All in the family" too, the one where Archie is stuck in an elevator. A relatively unknown Hector Elizondo was also in that episode.

I also remember her from "The Sting", it's one of my favorite films and soundtracks.

I actually best remember her from that, as well as Clue

I most remember her for her role in the movie ... The Sting. That was certainly not a comedy!
