Introduction -- 1942-69 -- The 1970s -- The 1980s -- The 1990s -- Epilogue.
Kahn was one of the most popular comedians of her time, and one of the least understood. In private, she was as reserved and refined as her characters were bold and bawdy. Madison examines Kahn's film career, including not only her triumphs with Mel Brooks and Peter Bogdanovich, but also her overlooked performances, her work in television, and her New York theater experiences. Above all, Madison reveals the paramount importance of music in Kahn's life.
