Not as bad as I might have feared. It would have been nice if this quiz gave some additional details when revealing answers. (Such as for question #1.)

Cloris was one of the funniest ladies to grace the big and small screen. She will be missed. Off to watch Young Frankenstein again.

Cloris was amazing not only as an actress but a person as well. ‘Back in the day’ she was engaged (although they didn’t marry) to my hubby's uncle. She and my mother in law went to HS together in DesMoines, IA. Throughout their lives they made a point to get together once a year until they could no longer. May she RIP.

Wow, I guess I did not know Cloris Leachman’s acting gigs as well as I thought I did. I remember seeing her in Mel Brooks movies, the facts of life, Mary Tyler Moore show, and Phyllis. She was a very funny lady. May she rest in peace.🙏🏻🙌🏻

10/12 i thought for sure there would be a Kiss Me Deadly question. Wrong about that and a couple of other things
10 for 12. I too was hoping there would be a reference to that Mike Hammer flick. Cloris
is totally unrecognizable in that flick as a B Girl Hammer meets, she was quite fetching.

Didn't do too well...8/12. In her day Cloris was a babe! IMHO.

As she reached her 40s definitely. I didn't even recognize her as a Miss America contestant. Helen Mirren same thing.

"Cloris Leachman was a Miss America contestant? What year was that?"
I believe it was Teddy Roosevelt who walked her on stage.

Okay...I get it.

She was in the 1946 Miss America edition. I wasn't trying to be mean to Cloris, but I just
couldn't resist the set up line. I always thought her a right goer.
