    My GOD this guy was a comedy legend both in performing and writing some of the 20th century's best loved and biggest comedy movies

    Unlike other celebrities this one hits me.

    I loved his work.

    One day after serving 22 years in the Army I drove through part of Ft. Knox with some young troops. I pointed out some spots to them such as the place where they filmed the graduation scene in Stripes and some other scenes. I told them how back in 1985 I actually went to the Pom Pom room in Lousiville which was still open at the time.

    They said " what's stripes ?"

    After throwing them out of my truck I decided it was time to retire. Every man and most women of my age peer group saw the movie Stripes and even thought the Army is not like the movie it was actually part of many peoples motive to join up hoping to have that kind of fun. Of course after doing so you realize it was a just a movie but still a landmark movie for a generation of soldiers.

    Ramis was great he will be missed.


    RIP Harold - you're kind will never again grace this earth.

    I absolutely LOVED Groundhog Day.

    Ghostbuster's is wonderful as well. I can't believe I haven't seen Caddyshack though.

    In all honesty, because of the generation gap, it took a Long time before I saw Caddyshack. I even saw the sequel (I know, I know) before the original. I want to say the more mature content (boobies) prevented me from seeing it on basic Tv, but I could be wrong. I just recall a serious lack of Caddyshack on TV (aside from HBO or something) for a while. Maybe I am wrong.

    My folks tried to shield me from R films for a while, and my peers weren't into most films from the 80s or 70s (some exceptions aside).

    It's one of those things I had to come into myself or with my younger brother. I think together we saw a number of those films, but it was a gradual process.

    The generation gap is a killer. I'm spending some serious time and sometimes dough on being exposed to Golden Age films, because no one in their right mind could stand black and white films when I was growing up. The pacing was different, the music muted, the shots were longer, and the lack of "flashbacks" made older films harder to get into. Now I'm cruising, but that generation gap effect is real!
