Imogene Coca: 1908-2001: Actress.

Imogene Coca was best remembered as the elfin come-dienne with the incredibly flexible face who starred with Sid Caesar on television's Your Show of Shows. Her career spanned from the waning days of vaudeville through the comedy resorts of the Catskills and on through the beginnings of television, extending to a fondly remembered role as elderly Aunt Edna, strapped to the roof of a station wagon in National Lampoon's Vacation. Coca's greatest talent was subtle exaggeration; she could take a normal situation and just barely skew it, nudging it over the edge into hilarity.
