Kenneth Mars 1935-2011

Sorry for all the depressing deaths, but I can't ignore this. Via Roy Edroso at Alicublog, I've just learned that one of my favorite comic actors, Kenneth Mars has passed away. Best known as Springtime For Hitler author Franz Liebkind in The Producers, my favorite role of his was Inspector Kemp, the police captain in Young Frankenstein. Also I loved him as Hugh (pronounced "You") in the silly What's Up, Doc?. Some people had Barney the Dinosaur, I had people like Mars, Gene Wilder, Woody Allen... RIP and so long...
