Monday, May 4th saw the passing of another Hollywood great, Dom DeLuise. A talented comedian and actor, husband, father of three, gourmet chef, author and according to those that knew him, a genuinely nice guy. His ample comic talents were used in wonderfully entertaining movies like The World's Greatest Lover, The Adventure of Sherlock Holmes' Smarter Brother and Blazing Saddles. My personal favorite would have to be his role as Marlon Borunki, the psycho killer with a Polish complex, in Burt Reynolds' black comedy masterpiece The End. Dom will be missed...
