RIP. Cannonball Run is the first movie i recall including outtakes during the credits. Dom and Burt must've had a great time making those movies cuz they were always messing up takes laughing.

His roles in BLAZING SADDLES and ROBIN HOOD: MEN IN TIGHTS are two of my favorite roles of his, especially in BLAZING SADDLES. RIP good sir. :thumbsup:

This is one of the few celeb deaths I have to admit I'm quite sad to hear about, I loved Dom DeLuise's work. In fact, even in a bad movie I always enjoyed him. He just couldn't be brought down even if everyone else was lacking. I'll truly miss seeing him randomly pop up and bring instant comedic splendor.

Sad to hear, but not surprising. He was a really funny guy. My first exposure to him was Buddy in Blazing Saddles, and he had considerable range there and in everything else. It was kind of a bummer that he didn't get more work in the last 15 years. The comedy world has suffered a significant loss with his passing.
