I guess that leaves Mel Brooks and Dick Van Dyke.



Brooks is only 94, he's got some time left (hopefully)

Of course. But it’s still sad when the curtain rings down for that final time.

Had NO clue he was still alive :shock:  I used to love watching 20/20 back in the day with Hugh and Baba Wawa, he was a great tv presence.

How may people do we think only knew Carl Reiner as the guy from the Ocean 11 movies?  I may or may not be in that category.

Probably because it is the first thing I can remember seeing him in, the first thing that comes to mind for me is his cameo in Steve Martin's The Jerk, which Reiner also directed.

Bummer.  Million Mile Reflections was one of my favorite albums growing up.

His fiddle in the live version of "24 Hours at a Time" is one of the first things I think about.  Saw him at the Cape Cod Coliseum, which was this concrete cinder-block building owned by Vince McMahon before the WWF (E) became huge.

I’m guessing the moderators will not allow the posting of a certain scene from Mischief in this thread as a tribute.
