35th Anniversary showing of Young Frankenstein with Cloris Leachman (photo)
Edited on Mon Oct-19-09 06:41 PM by Omaha Steve

One thousand seats sold out last Friday night in Omaha. Cloris did improvised comedy, and the place went nuts. She is 82 I believe.


George England Jr. (Cloris Leachmans' son) Cloris Leachman and Bruce Crawford.


This was Bruce's 25th film event. Look close at his past events. You will see me dressed in a tux as a member of the official party at one of the events. (No hints). More On Bruce's events here: http://www.omahafilmevent.com /

In a week or two, the Young Frankenstein event should be online too.

11. "I alway sleep better with a little sausage in me"...
Beer Fest was an underrated comedy, IMO. There were parts of the movie that had me laughing my ass off.

"he's got the Eye of the Jew" :rofl:

2. One of the great movies of Mel Brooks influence. I remember seeing The Producers when it came out.
I saw it as a second feature in the days when they did that. Loved it then and now.

Young Frankenstein (pronounced Fronckensteen) stared Gene Wilder and Madeline Kahn. Love that movie.

10. My husband always had the hots for her, he's 47 y/o. There is just something
special about Cloris Leachman. And she's 82 in that photo? She looks Ab Fab.

Say, I'd like too see a pic of Omaha Steve in a tux!

Hope you had a great time.
