Favorite Movie Character 01: Erma Birdwell

Bloodsucking Pharaohs in Pittsburgh (1991)
This voice box toting, chain-smoking gal is one of
my all time favorite movie characters!

A cartoonish personification of one's nicotine addiction
taken to a whole new absurd extreme.

One particular scene where Erma attempts to quit
her all consuming habit by attending a clinic with rather
violent and unorthodox treatments.
Is one of the of many hysterical scenes that occur in this underrated horror comedy.

"Would you inhale again please, Mrs. Birdwell?"
