Happy birthday, Cloris Leachman.

A Troll in Central Park for whatever reason was one of those movies I watched over and over again and really loved as a kid...rewatching it again, I have no idea why I liked it so much since it isn't very good, especially in regards to the little bit of plot it has and how it comes to a screeching halt with so much plodding filler and the stereotypical cutesy characters are pretty annoying, I kinda wish I could go back in time and ask my kid self why I liked it so much since it leaves me kinda baffled and makes me cringe a little.

However Cloris Leachman definitely gave one of the more entertaining performances in that movie and I really loved her chemistry with Charles Nelson Reilly, even now while I admit it isn't a very good movie, their interactions do keep me somewhat entertained and almost make it worth revisiting.

So yeah, despite the abysmal material she got, her over the top acting made it seem like she had a lot of fun in the role making Gnorga just plain villainous and nasty, and she managed to salvage the movie a little bit for me, which I guess is a nice testament to her acting abilities. I'm glad she's still around and acting in other things.

Happy Birthday Cloris Leachman!

Another of the funniest ladies in the history of comedy.

My personal favourite role of hers was as Frau Blücher in Mel Brooks Young Frankenstein.

I also really loved her performances as Grandma Ida on Malcolm in the Middle, Phyllis Lindstrom on The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Madame Defarge in History of the World Part 1, Granny in The Beverly Hillbillies, Mrs. Glick on The Simpsons, Mrs. Tensedge in The Iron Giant, Granny Goodness on Justice League Action and Martha the Old Lady in Beavis and Butt-Head Do America.

It's great seeing her still active at her age and may she continue to have many more years.

She's great in many roles. My favorite has to be Ruth Popper in The Last Picture Show.

Ah Cloris Leachman, Dola was so magnificently hammy and salty in the Disney Dub of Laputa: Castle In the Sky, in no small part due to Cloris' hilarious performance.
