Ah.  Sorry to hear that.  He's no SHIRLEY TEMPLE, but, it's another legend gone.  Good night Isaac Sidney

What a classic! He was a comedian that spanned decades,both on the big screen and tv....a hilarious man of energy and quick wit. Hopefully he and Imogene Coca are hamming it up still.

Probably his best work was with Imogene Coca in TV's "Your Show of Shows," but I'll always remember him as the dentist looking for the money in "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World" buried under the "Big W." And especially in one of the funniest scenes in the film, when he was trapped with his wife (played by Edie Adams) in the basement of the hardware store.

A part originally made for Ernie Kovacs, which was why Edie Adams was cast as the wife, but when Ernie was killed in an automobile accident, Sid stepped into the role.

If one has not seen the film, apparently Criterion has just released a new edition in DVD and Blu-Ray.

A film that we'll never see its like, as the talent both and behind the camera is just not there anymore, and if it was, it has just become too expensive to make a film of that type with all the comics in it.

And with his death, is Mickey Rooney the last surviving cast member still living?

R.I.P. Sid.

Rooney: What happened to you?

Caesar: We fell into yellow.

Great film! I loved the bit where they were locked in the basement. Wink

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
