In 1972 she appeared in a sketch scene in the original Broadway production of The Sunshine Boys as well as repeating her performance in the 1975 film version with Walter Matthau and George Burns. However, she is best known for playing Ulla in the original 1968 version of The Producers. Lore Noto, well-known producer of The Fantasticks recommended Lee and sent her to the casting director (Lore rented office space to Mel Brooks during the time Mel was creating the original film version of The Producers. Lore was working on the broadway production of The Yearling). Her most recent appearance is on the DVD edition of that film (2002), where she gives an interview.
