Wiki Biography: Willowy and statuesque leading lady Sally Kellerman was born on June 2, 1937 in Long Beach, California. Sally studied acting at Actors Studio West with Jeff Corey, Shirley Knight, Dean Stockwell and Jack Nicholson. It was in 1957 when Sally made her film debut in Reform School Girl (1957). In the 1960s, she built up her resume with offbeat performances on television series such as "Bob Hope Presents the Chrysler Theatre" (1963), "Slattery's People" (1964) and "It Takes a Thief" (1968). In 1968, Sally starred as Dianne Cluney, the only surviving victim of Albert DeSalvo's in The Boston Strangler (1968). It was in 1970 when Sally found her breakthrough role, a role in which she almost turned down due to the script of her character. The role was of Major Margaret "Hot-Lips" Houlihan in Robert Altman's MASH (1970), Sally earned both an Oscar and Golden Globe nomination and won a Kansas City Film Critics Circle Award and a Golden Laurel Award for her performance. Sally continued working with Robert Altman in his next film, Brewster McCloud (1970); Sally starred as an adventurous and socially awkward fairy-godmother of Bud Cort. In 1972, Sally starred as a chain-smoking, sex-addicted and very angry one-night stand of Alan Arkin's in Gene Saks's Last of the Red Hot Lovers (1972), starring opposite Paula Prentiss and Renée Taylor. In 1976, Sally starred alongside Lauren Hutton and Sissy Spacek in Robert Altman's Welcome to L.A. (1976). In 1980, Sally starred as the divorced mother of a young Jodie Foster in Foxes (1980), and in 1986, she starred as the love interest of Rodney Dangerfield in Back to School (1986). In 1994, Sally teamed up with a superstar cast of Sophia Loren, Lauren Bacall, Julia Roberts, Marcello Mastroianni and Tim Robbins for Robert Altman's Prêt-à-Porter (1994). Having been in a handful of films, Sally has built up quite the impressive resume, however, following a new career in her longtime passion, singing. In 2009, Sally recorded and released her first album since her 1969 debut album, "Rolling With the Feelin'", called "Sally". Sally has been touring around different parts of her home-state and in metropolitan areas; New York City and New Jersey. Sally still continues to both act and sing in her young years.
