    What a shame. Loved him on his brief stint on SCTV as well.

    I'll never forget his quote after Doug Kenney's(co-wrote Caddyshack) evident suicide:

    "Doug probably fell looking for a place to jump."

    I thought I read/heard somewhere that he and Bill Murray had a falling out at some point. Anyone else hear that?

    Recruiter: Now, are either of you homosexuals?
    John Winger: [John and Russell look at each other] You mean, like, flaming, or...
    Recruiter: Well, it's a standard question we have to ask.
    Russell Ziskey: No, we're not homosexual, but we are *willing to learn*.

    Pretty much. Two strong personalities like them clash. Bill often has his own ideas to make movies better and funnier, and was very dogged in his efforts.
    I heard an interview with him recently where he basically rewrote the first Garfield movie, after they did all the film work. He significantly changed the movie plot because he thought it sucked and lead a reedit effort of the film and changed Garfield's lines.

    Super frustrating for producers and writers, Ramis was rightfully proud of his work and together they couldn't handle the other's interactions. I would say Bill was more at fault for it.
    The consistent factor of all of your dissatisfying relationships and failures is you.

    R.W. 09.21.10 I love you.

    I think I recall hearing it was during the filming of Groundhog Day. I don't think the two of them collaborated on any more movies after that, which is sad because they made some pretty funny movies together.

    Does anyone know if the planned Ghostbusters movie was filmed before Harold died? If it wasn't filmed, then there is no doing it now without Egon. I was just watching the Ghostbusters Blu-Ray two weeks ago!

    Forgive me for wanting one more Ghostbusters movie out of Harold. I thought there was potential for it to be good.

    As defined by the Official Terrorism Training For Law Enforcement:
    What Is Domestic Terrorism?
    Extreme force and violence perpetrated by
    the people government of a country, within that country,
    for the purpose of coercing its government and population public
    into modifying its behavior"

    Ramis was one of those subtly hilarious guys. He was very good at developing characters that were over the top, but at the same time those subtle traits in the sub-characters are very memorable in many of the pieces he worked on.

    Vacation and Groundhog Day are really legendary.


    Thanks, Harold

    The word "hero" is frequently abused badly. This is a real hero.

    If that's true. You should be in much better moods far more times than you are.

    I can't say I enjoyed your work as much as other posters who've posted here, but I really did dig Stripes when it came out. And the last time I saw you, a couple weeks ago on tv, you made me laugh then as well.

    I always thought of him as underrated. He never got the kudo's his other buddies did. Sad to see him go so young.

    I think that's because he was more or less - the straight guy. The one to play off. Like in STRIPES, he plays the more or less normal guy who sort of brings out the crazy in the others.

    Plus his real talent seems to be in the concept, the writing. I don't think - I'm not sure but as I recall - films weren't talked about in terms of writers as much back then. You heard about who the Director was, and the actors, other than that the producers and writers weren't held out with the acclaim they seem to get these days. I could be wrong, but maybe that's one reason. I mean, we know who wrote The Godfather because it was Mario Puzo's novel - who wrote the screenplay? We know Tom Clancy writes all his books - but who writes the screenplays? Heck, it goes all the way back to that SAVING MR. BANKS and the writer of Mary Poppins. The writers just didn't get that much acclaim. I don't think it was until Robert Town (Chinatown, among others) and William Goldman (Butch Cassiday & The Sundance Kid, among others) came along that writers really started to get the acclaim - but then that was before Ramis. Like I say, I could be wrong, but I think Ramis was considered part of the SCTV/Lampoon creative team, versus a pioneer writer just by himself. At any rate, to those who counted he mattered alot.
