The Late Movies: Dom DeLuise

Mario Marsicano

Tonight I'd like to recognize an actor that made me laugh more times than I can count. Dom DeLuise passed away yesterday at the age of 75, but he left enough funny out there to keep us rolling for years to come.

Let's start with a classic. Dom plays a frustrated director in Blazing Saddles.

Dom was a regular on the Dean Martin roasts. Here is is skewering Frank Sinatra (3:50 on the clip).

More Dom and Dean. Here's a clip from the Dean Martin show

Dom and a bunch of eggs make a stop on the Tonight Show.

Dom played an escaped mental patient in a really funny and often overlooked flick, The End. No one did crazy like Dom.

And we'll end with another classic...History of the World Part 1.

Yesterday's Late Movies: Cinco de Mayo. Monday: Star Wars.
