Gone from the Movies: Harold Ramis

Posted by purplemary54 on February 24, 2014

I write about music, but sometimes my fandom is bigger than that.  It hit the news this morning that actor/writer/director Harold Ramis has died at 69.  As part of a comedic team with the great Bill Murray, Ramis helped create some of the warmest, funniest movies that I’ve ever seen.  he knew how to be silly and humorous without being stupid, gross, or insensitive.  Because many of the jokes were kind of juvenile, people didn’t realize just how smart a lot of that humor was.  His work was satiric and subtle, and he will be sorely missed.
