Farewell to Harold Ramis, dead at 69

And so it’s adieu to Harold Ramis, the writer, director and sometime actor who will be forever remembered as nerdy Egon Spengler from the Ghostbusters movies. A significant comedic talent, Ramis was active as a director throughout the ’80s, ’90s and into the millennium with films such as Caddyshack, Groundhog Day (perfectly partnering friend and co-star Bill Murray) and Analyze This. Not a naturally gifted performer he was nonetheless a superb writer with an ear for wisecracking dialogue, often seized upon by Murray, Dan Ackroyd and Billy Crystal. He also made Robert De Niro funny – not an easy trick. Image
