Flowers was known as the "Queen of Hollywood Extras" appearing in over eight hundred movies plus hundreds of TV episodes and short films too. She holds the record for most feature film appearances by an actor, as well as both the records for most appearances in an Oscar nominated title at one hundred and sixty-eight and most appearances in a Best Picture nominee at twenty-three.
