above: carol in the last detail and annie hall
we just watched the last detail (an amazing film that merits a post in itself) and i was reminded of my love for carol kane. i began wondering what she's been up to lately; a little internet research tells me that her last big project was a leading role in that broadway phenomenon wicked. i don't think i'll ever see wicked, but no matter: i will always love and remember carol kane for these early movies, as well for her role as simka, latka's wife on taxi (remember how they used to fight?). she's delicately beautiful and a little bit odd. love her to pieces.
