Re: Harold Ramis Dead at 69

Harold Ramis' films were a childhood staple for me. There's far too much good material to list it all, but nothing sticks in my mind more than Ghostbusters. Damn shame.

Not usually one that gets affected by these RIP threads this one actually hit me hard. I guess because I grew up with his movies

This was quite unexpected. Ramis was a staple of comedies as I was growing up. He will be greatly missed. RIP.

Re: Harold Ramis Dead at 69

One of the funniest moments I have of him, not including so many other moments. But this scene is what first caught my eye as to how funny the guy was.

Ah, geez. This news really does suck. He directed Caddyshack and Vacation and continued to have a strong career. RIP.

I appreciated a lot of his work in front of, and behind, the camera.
