Eileen Brennan, worked in film for 20 years before achieving her widest recognition as Capt. Doreen Lewis, the tough superior officer to Goldie Hawn's title character in the comedy "Private Benjamin". The role gave Brennan an Oscar nomination.
I'll always remember her best as Mrs. Peacock from the fantastic 1980's board-game adaptation "Clue". She played a Senator's wife who had a taste for monkeys brains, blackmail and murder.
