The late Harold Ramis left an indelible mark on the comedy world upon his passing Monday, leaving behind a body of work that included some of the best-loved comedy films of all time — Animal House, Caddyshack, Ghostbusters, Groundhog Day, and Analyze This among them. If you’ve got an hour and a half, you probably won’t find a better in-depth and career-spanning look at a pioneering career as you will get from this interview that Ramis gave in 2009 at the Museum of the Moving Image on the eve of releasing his final film, Year One. He covers everything from his days of futility trying to break in at Saturday Night Live (too ethnic), to his days in the Second City comedy troupe through his big break into Hollywood, relationship with guys like Belushi and Murray, and beyond. It’s a long sit, so you might want to listen when you have some time, but we feel it was well worth it.
