First blog post in a while, and it’s a downer.
The great Harvey Korman has passed away.
You may remember him from Mel Brooks’ classics like Blazing Saddles (as Hedley Lamarr) and History of the World, Part 1 (as Count DeMoney), or from The Carol Burnett Show.
And it was a few days ago that director/actor Sydney Pollack left us. I’ll remember him best as Dustin Hoffman’s exasperated agent in Tootsie (which he also directed), but he was probably more successful as a director (The Way We Were, Out of Africa, The Firm).
Wherever they are now, it’s a much funnier and more interesting place with those guys there.
