Madeline Kahn


Madeline Kahn Trivia


  • Trivia

    • Madeline was once inspired comedically by Lucille Ball, but after being hired to play Agnes Gooch in the 1974 movie version of Mame, she was fired on the first day she showed up for work. Ms. Ball, who was playing Mame, was not pleased with Kahn's physical appearance, citing artistic differences, as well. After Lucille Ball delivered a barrage of derogatory remarks regarding Method acting to Madeline, Kahn was asked to leave, and actress Jane Connell took over the role of Agnes Gooch.
