NPR Sunday Puzzle (Mar 4): Scrambled actress

NPR Sunday Puzzle (Mar 4): Scrambled actress:
Q: Take the thirteen letter word, Melancholiacs, add the letter R, then re-arrange all the letters to name a famous actress. Who is it?
This one took awhile to figure out because you can form all sorts of common female names with those letters. Plus with the Academy Awards on, I kept thinking that there would be a connection to some recent actress, or someone receiving a lifetime award. Well, I was wrong...

Edit: Time for the answer. I remember this actress from her days on Mary Tyler Moore and later on her own show as Phyllis.
A: CLORIS LEACHMAN
