    (March 30, 1929-February 17, 1999)
    Born in New York, New York
    Acted in films 'The Honeymoon Killers' (1970), 'Klute' (1971), 'Seven Beauties' (1975), 'The Deer Hunter' (1978), 'Desperately Seeking Susan' (1985), 'Miami Blues' (1990), 'Frankenhooker' (1990), 'Malcolm X' (1992) and 'The Deli' (1997)
    Guest starred on TV shows 'Charlie's Angels,' 'The Edge of Night' and 'Pee-Wee's Playhouse'
    She resembled Divine.
    She was typecast as a sadistic thug.
    She relished being treated like a queen bee when 'The Honeymoon Killers' premiered.
    Her size limited the roles she could play.
    She was offered the role of Mama Cass Elliot (by Eliot herself) for a film about The Mamas and the Papas but turned it down.
    She spoke highly of her co-stars in 'The Honeymoon Killers.'
    She felt firing Martin Scorsese as director of 'The Honeymoon Killers' was a mistake.
    She was much praised for her portrayal of a sadistic commandant in Lina Wertmuller's 'Seven Beauties.'
    Film roles eventually became so scarce she had to work for an answering service.
    She continued to work in theater up until her death.
    She said, 'Weight shouldn't be a hindrance, but casting people are afraid of it.'
