Peter Boyle, R. I. P.

TV News- 'Raymond' Dad Peter Boyle Dead at 71: "Peter Boyle, the tall, prematurely bald actor who was the tap-dancing monster in 'Young Frankenstein' and the curmudgeonly father in the long-running sitcom 'Everybody Loves Raymond,' has died. He was 71."

I never saw Raymond. What I remember is the great "Puttin' on the Ritz" scene in Young Frankenstein (and of course the funny final scene he has with Madeline Kahn). And Joe.

And THE CANDIDATE...and the X-FILES episode "Clyde Bruckman's Final Repose"...EVERYBODY LR is best not seen. I hope he had a good time doing it.

And THE FRIENDS OF COYLE... Plus smaller parts in TAXI DRIVER and MEDIUM COOL...
I saw YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN a few weeks ago and yes, it's still funny as hell. They don't make'em like that anymore. And Teri Garr is unbelievably cute in it.
