One of my contemporary favorites died today -- actor, writer, director Harold Ramis.
Actor, writer, and director Harold Ramis died early today at the age of 69. He’s best known for his onscreen performances inGhostbusters and Stripes, as well as his work behind the camera for Caddyshack, National Lampoon's Vacation, and Groundhog Day. Ramis was a comedic legend, cutting his chops at Second City in the 1970s. Ramis passed away from complications due to a rare autoimmune disease and had been suffering from health problems since 2010.
