Harvey Korman, 1927-2008

Rough week for stars of the 1960s. First it was Dick Martin and Sydney Pollack; now Harvey Korman has died at age 81.

The LA Times, quoting Korman’s daughter, says the actor died of “complications from an abdominal aortic aneurysm that ruptured four months ago.”

Korman was a comedy co-star on The Carol Burnett Show from 1967-77, and is also fondly remembered for his comedy roles in the films of Mel Brooks, especially the 1974 western send-up Blazing Saddles.
