St. Louis remembers Harold Ramis

24 Feb

This story originally appeared on RealTime/STL.

Actor, writer and director Harold Ramis died Monday; he was 69. Ramis was known for several great comedies, including “Animal House,” “Groundhog Day,” “Meatballs,” “Caddyshack,” “Stripes,” “Ghostbusters” and “National Lampoon’s Vacation.”

Throughout the day, St. Louisans shared their memories of Ramis and his work.

Ramis attended Washington University, and in 2005 he told the Post-Dispatch that his experiences there provided fodder for “Animal House.”

The university honored Ramis in 1988; then with Channel 5, J.C. Corcoran interviewed Ramis.

Ramis has a star on the St. Louis Walk of Fame on Delmar Boulevard.
