Bob Barry’s Unearthed Interviews Podcast: Cloris Leachman

What’s up with Cloris Leachman and a $5,000 shopping spree in Chicago? That was one question I had for the eight-time Primetime Emmy Award winner. Her 22 nominations made her the most nominated, along with Julie Dreyfus, in Emmy history. She was in many films including “The Last Picture Show” and appeared as Frau blucher in “Young Frankenstein.” Cloris was probably best known on television for playing Phyllis Lindstrom on “The Mary Tyler Moore Show.”  Other TV show credits include: “The Facts of Life,” “Malcolm in the Middle,” “The Office” and many TV movies and miniseries. In 2008, Cloris was a contestant on “Dancing with the Stars,” paired with Corky Ballas, father of champion Mark Ballas. She was the oldest to appear on the show and placed seventh in the competition.
