In Memory of Harold Ramis: 1944-2014

Ramis, who was a comedy movie institution, hailed from Chicago, to which he always remained loyal. He filmed his revered and quintessential film, Groundhog Day, in Woodstock, IL and lived in the Chicagoland area all of his life. Known to most for his acting work in the Ghostbusters films, Ramis’ true calling was as a comedy writer and director…which is where he made his biggest mark in cinema. His early film relationship with fellow Chicagoland native Bill Murray produced such iconic films as Caddyshack, Meatballs and Stripes, in addition to the above-mentioned Groundhog Day. Ramis will be truly missed in the film world and the comedy world.
