Q Whatever happened to the lovely Louise Fletcher? I only saw her once, in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. How old is she, and what's she doing now?

Fletcher, 73, appeared last year in the Lifetime network's television movie Me and Luke, and can be seen in the new DVD A Dennis the Menace Christmas, in which she plays Mrs. Wilson. She won an Academy Award in 1976 for her portrayal in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest of the villainous Nurse Ratched, a role turned down by Anne Bancroft, Ellen Burstyn and Jane Fonda.
