That's a shame. I grew up watching him. He'll be missed.

Wow, this one hurt. Not only did he play Egon, my favorite character in the Ghostbusters franchise, but he also directed my favorite comedy of all time, National Lampoon's Vacation.

I had no idea that he'd been sick. I wish that Ghostbusters 3 had come together. Thanks for all laughter Mr. Ramis.

I'm going to watch Stripes tonight for the 59th time.

I'm saddened beyond the capacity for rational thought.

So many of my favorite movies come from him. This one seriously hurts me. I think I'm going to go watch Ghostbusters, now.

Re: RIP Harold Ramis

I was raised on Ghostbusters and his other movies, he probably contributed more to my sense of humor and love of comedies than I can ever realize.

This really sucks.

I hope he managed to patch things up with Bill Murray...
Apparently it wasn't a feud?
No, it wasn't a feud in the sense that they were actively warring with one another. They had a number of very public and very nasty blow-ups on the set of Groundhog Day, and when Murray's final day of shooting was complete, he walked up to Ramis and told him, "I have nothing more to say to you." So they never worked together again, and never had anything more than passing "hellos" at wakes, funerals, etc.

I didn't like many of his movies, but I've got to say that Animal House and Groundhog Day were great.

Ray: Do you remmeber that time you tried to drill a hole through your head?"
Egon: "That would have worked if you hadn't stopped me."

Egon was my favorite of the four, but they were slo closely ranked an each a part of the team that they might as well be equal. Egon jsut edges it, which is saying a lot for how awesome that character is.

Ramis did so much for comedy. Since comedy is harder to pull of right than any drama, that says so much. His comedies were memorable and quotable and stand up to the test of time.

He truly was a legend!

Re: RIP Harold Ramis

The moment where his Stripes character finally breaks down, snaps and starts pummeling Bill Murray for convincing him to join the Army will always be a classic scene.

Re: RIP Harold Ramis

Was shocked when this came up as breaking news on the TV. All the usual cliches went through my head. . "I didn't know he'd been ill". . ."Was he really 69?".

For me, seeing the name Harold Ramis just made me think of him in Ghostbusters. He never aged from the image in my mind. It's a real shame that he's left us. Some of his films as director were really good stuff.
