Harold Ramis (1944-2014)
By Torleif Sorenson on 2/25/14
Harold Ramis, the comedic actor, writer, and director, passed away on Monday, February 24 at the age of 69. The Chicago Tribune reported that Ramis died from "complications of autoimmune inflammatory vasculitis."
While Ramis appeared in a total of 19 films, wrote or co-wrote 16, and directed 11, golf enthusiasts will probably best remember Ramis as the co-writer and director of the 1980 golf comedy Caddyshack. It was his first feature film as writer-director and was based in part on his younger days as a caddie, as well as that of co-writer Brian Doyle-Murray.
Golf blogger Shane Bacon helpfully found this clip of an interview Ramis gave to the American Film Institute:
