RIP Harvey Korman
One funny guy, seen here in the best of his Mel Brooks credits, Blazing Saddles. And the Carol Burnett sketches hold up well, even (or especially) when Korman and Co. have trouble containing themselves on camera. Korman, Sydney Pollack (who did a lot on the tube in his early career), Dick Martin, veteran director Joseph Pevney, composers Earle Hagen (The Andy Griffith Show, I Spy) and Alexander Courage (Star Trek)--it's been a tough week in TV Land.
