Verna Bloom has died at the age of 80.

Quote
Although Bloom appeared extensively in theater and television, she is most noted for her film work. One of her memorable roles came in John Landis’ 1978 comedy “Animal House,” in which she appeared as the drunken, debauched wife of the beleaguered Dean Wormer. She also appeared in three films by Martin Scorsese — “Street Scenes 1970,” “The Last Temptation of Christ” (1988), and “After Hours” (1985) — and two by Clint Eastwood: “High Plains Drifter” (1973) and “Honkytonk Man” (1982).

The Times finally got around to printing her obit yesterday:

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/01/11/obituaries/verna-bloom-dead.html

Talking about her part in Animal House, Tim Matheson told the Times:

Quote
Mr. Matheson recalled in a telephone interview that Ms. Bloom “didn’t look down at what we were doing and jumped right in.” He added: “I was already in awe of her because I’d loved her in ‘Medium Cool’ and ‘High Plains Drifter.’ Here was this serious, accomplished dramatic actress doing our silly little movie. Her commitment was just remarkable. She was fearless.”
