Loved This Actress

Eileen Brennan isn't the first name you think of when you think great Hollywood celebrities, but at least in my mind, she always caught my eye.
She died this week at the age of 80. I always found her roles to stick out in the films she was in. Her most notable role was the tough talking Drill Sergeant in 1980's Private Benjamin, for which she received a Oscar Nomination. You'll also remember her from The Sting and playing Mrs. Peacock in the 1986 movie version of Clue. RIP.
Here she is doing her rendition of La Vie en Rose in Neil Simon's, The Cheap Detective.
