I was taken aback at how beautiful she was the first time I saw The Last Picture Show. She reminds me of the Seinfeld episode "The Strike" which popularized the notion of "Two Face." She could appear as homely as a 4 or stunningly attractive as a 9 depending on lighting, make-up, and hairstyle.

I just found out she was the mother in the Twilight Zone episode "It's a Good Life."

(That's the "wish him into the cornfield" one.)

She was funny as hell in Young Frankenstein.

Was she on 30 Rock?

#1 - I still shout that on occasion when a friend is entering a room, someone whinny's back, the dour response keeps it fresh, but I only see Cloris standing there with a stern face. A sweet memory we share.
