Harold Ramis, RIP -- March 2, 2014
Harold Ramis died last week. I remember seeing him on SCTV in the 1970s. He wrote National Lampoon's Animal House with Douglas Kenney and Chris Miller. I was interested to learn recently that some people didn't understand what happened to the horse. I never saw Meatballs or Caddyshack. People kept telling me that Caddyshack was the funniest movie they had ever seen. I guessed that it probably wasn't. I'll have to look for it.
I was sad to learn that he was going to make a movie out of John Kennedy Toole's A Confederacy of Dunces with John Belushi, but it never happened.
I liked Ghostbusters and Groundhog Day. I didn't like Analyze This and his version of Bedazzled.
