Press Clippings: The last two posts have been about Harold Ramis, the great comic writer/actor/director, who left us way too early at age 69. (I would have loved to see what he could have done with the rich comic material of old age). Ramis’ influence was penetrative and subtle and so deft that even the most sophisticated movie reviewers missed the full impact of what he was doing. Recalibrate and celebrate Harold Ramis by reading Roger Ebert’s review of Groundhog Day, a Ramis classic. One more thing: Ebert himself was a very talented observer and writer, as your reading of his piece on Groundhog Day will certainly reveal.
