    Now I will be sad when I watch Young Frankenstein, High Anxiety and Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.

    She had the ability to provide humor and shock at the same time.

    We will miss her, very talented.

    94 years old. I’m always saddened by a loss, yet pleased when I read about somebody who lived a full life and died a natural death.

    I suspect she was a class act, may she RIP

    She could do drama, comedy, tough chick, femme fatale, or damsel in distress. RIP, Cloris!

    Very sad. She was such a funny lady. Loved her - Young Frankenstein is on my top three movie list. Rest easy Cloris.

    The Last Picture Show was a masterful piece of film making and her performance was integral to the movie's success as a work of art. RIP.

    Watched her when she was on Mary Tyler show till she did Dancing with the Stars. She could do it all. I remember watching her on Dancing With the Stars and think "Dang, 80+ years old and she still looked the same and still the best legs in town as my Dad would say.
    Keep on Dancing Cloris..
