Dom DeLuise RIP

i've loved the comedy stylings of Dom DeLuise since i saw him in the first R-rated movie i was allowed to see in a theater (and then only because some precocious kid was taking his whole birthday party to see it and my parents didn't want me cast out i guess), The End (1978). he also featured in such other classic favorites of mine as Cannonball Run, The History of the World Pt 1 and The Muppet Movie. Of course he was also in Blazing Saddles, but i did not see that fine film until long after its 1974 run.

Sad to read that DeLuise died today at the age of 75. Thanks for the good times, Dom.
