HEDLEY LAMARR, R.I.P.

New, 39 comments

Harvey Korman was the voice of the Great Gazoo on the Flintstones and a superb straight man on The Caroll Burnett Show, but to us he'll forever be Hedley Lamarr from Blazing Saddles. Deep down, Hedley represents the id in us all: a scheming, power-mad pervert prone to spouting purple prose bent on manipulating the world around him in unnecessarily elaborate ways. Or, as we call him, a role model for us all in a swanky suit and mustache.

R.I.P. Harvey. Go do that voodoo you do so well.
