LAST PICTURE SHOWN
Actress and Clorox favourite, Cloris Leachman, has died aged ninety-fucking-four. An acclaimed actress, she won the Oscar and the BAFTA for The Last Picture House, the Emmy for The Woman Who Walked a Miracle, The Golden Globe for Phyllis, as well as eight TV Emmy awards. With Mel Brooks she appeared in Young Frankenstein, with Bill Mumy in classic Twilight Zone episode It’s a Good Life, and with broken bad Bryan Cranston in Malcolm in the Middle. Not to mention her role in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. Or The Mary Tyler Moore Show. Or The Iron Giant (loosely based on Ted Hughes novel for kids), Herbie Goes Bananas, or Night Gallery. Or indeed, the reference you were all waiting for – the film, the myth, the legend: Bad Santa.
She was picked by 14 teams, including Dead Spotters, Naked Florida Gravediggers, and Wot the Deuce. And of course, Bleaching the Bottom of the Barrel.
