Gute Nacht, Frau Blücher

Cloris Leachman knew her way around an award podium.

The veteran actress, who passed away Wednesday at 94, earned a richly-deserved Oscar for The Last Picture Show.

Toss in eight Emmys for various projects, and more than 300 credits on IMDB, and she was one of our hardest-working, and most-honored stars.

Of all her work, my favorite Leachman performance will always be Frau Blücher, terrorizer of horses in my personal favorite comedy, Young Frankenstein.

Wherever you are tonight, be you horse or human, send up a whinny in salute.

A legend has passed, but legends live forever.
