Such terrible news this week, as we learned that Harold Ramis, a man who brought us so many laughs for so many years, has died far too soon. From “Animal House” and “Caddyshack” to “National Lampoon’s Vacation” and “Groundhog Day”, it didn’t seem to matter whether the man was writing, directing, or starring in his films. Everything he touched was comedy gold. He inspired countless other actors and filmmakers to follow suit, and was associated with a sort of comedy “dream team” when taken together with the cast of the two “Ghostbusters” films. Sadly, he was hard at work on a third installment in that series when he succumbed to the illness he had been battling for several years. There will be no shortage of tributes to the man, and here’s one of my personal favorite Ramis scenes, from the opening of the classic, “Stripes”.
