Harvey Korman

For those of you who were unaware, Harvey Korman passed away yesterday at the age of 81.

Most probably remember him for his role in Blazing Saddles as Hedley Lamarr. While that was no doubt fantastic in that, I will always have a sentimental spot for his role in History of the World, Part I, where he played a foppish nobleman during the French Revolution. Not the largest role ever, but played pitch-perfect and very funny.

Here's a picture:

"Don't get saucy with me, Bearnaise."

That was one of my favorite movies growing up. I used to watch it over and over again on sick days from school and quote lines from it to my friends and family until I was no longer cool.

I have yet to recover said cool.
