Biography from Leonard Maltin's Movie Encyclopedia:

Actress. (b. June 18, 1952, Cleveland.) One of the most distinctive and dependable actresses working in movies today, this tiny, waiflike woman with frizzy red (sometimes blond) hair sports an indescribable voice that seems to originate in another galaxy. Her first screen appearance, inIs This Trip Really Necessary? (1970), didn't attract much attention, but Kane accumulated several small but choice parts thereafter that boosted her stock with movie producers: the goofy girlfriend inCarnal Knowledge (1971), the pathetic whore inThe Last Detail (1973), and one of the hostage bank tellers inDog Day Afternoon (1975). Her role as a Jewish bride inHester Street (1975) brought her an Oscar nomination and greater prominence. She played Woody Allen's first wife in Annie Hall Gene Wilder's Valentino-struck wife inThe World's Greatest Lover (both 1977), and the terrorized baby-sitter inWhen a Stranger Calls (1979). A well-received guest shot on the TV sitcom "Taxi" as Simka, a babble-speaking immigrant, led to her joining the series' cast (eventually marrying Andy Kaufman's character, Latka) and earning her two Emmy Awards, in 1982 and 1983. Since then, she has kept busy with supporting parts in such films asRacing With the Moon (1984),Jumpin' Jack Flash (1986),The Princess Bride, Ishtar (both 1987), andScrooged (1988), as well as three showier roles in 1990:Flashback, The Lemon Sisters andMy Blue Heaven she was also hilarious as the Southern-fried soap-opera writer in the short-lived sitcom "All Is Forgiven" (1986). Recent credits include the madefor-TV sequel When a Stranger Calls Back, Addams Family Values (both 1993) and Even Cowgirls Get the Blues (1994).
