    Default Actor Harold Ramis dead at 69

    I enjoyed the Ghostbusters movies

    http://www.chicagotribune.com/entert...,2259309.story

    Ramis, a longtime North Shore resident, was surrounded by family when he died at 12:53 a.m. from complications of autoimmune inflammatory vasculitis, a rare disease that involves swelling of the blood vessels, his wife Erica Mann Ramis said. He was 69.

    In addition to his "classics," Analyze This is really good, and I liked the Ice Harvest a lot too.

    Damn, just caught some of Stripes last night.

    What if someone from a school of business or management school were to ask, How did you do this? How did you get the Pacers turned around? Is there a general approach you've taken that can be summarized?

    Ghostbusters, Caddyshack, Animal House, and Stripes among others. Simply put, he was one of the finest comedic film makers of our time.

    I really liked Ice Harvist and Analyze this and I think those two are definitely under appreciated.

    I was just thinking of watching Stripes this week. One of my favorite movies.

    Guess that puts the final nail in Ghostbusters 3.

    RIP, Egon.

    It's a hot debate, but I'd put Groundhog Day over everything.

    (Also technically only directed Caddyshack of the ones you listed, though obviously a huge part of each movie.)

    Stripes is probably my all-time favorite comedy, it's amazing how many Comedy Classic's he had a part in making. I was a fan, but I had no idea he had done so much. RIP

    Groundhog Day is spectacular. I'd really have a hard time putting them in order, because they're all so great in their own different way.

    Just look at his IMDB page. Between writing, directing, and acting credits, he has a comedic resumé to rival absolutely anyone.

    This Ramis piece from the New Yorker is 10 years old and the epitome of longform but it's a pretty interesting read.
