Harold Ramis was a familiar presence in comedies for more than three decades. From left, he, Dan Aykroyd and Bill Murray star in the 1984 film "Ghostbusters." Ramis played Dr. Egon Spengler and co-wrote the film with Aykroyd. Sony Pictures Home Entertainment
As actor Darren Criss put it, Ramis was the guy who supplied "endless movie quotes that have made college (kids) bond for generations," and 1978's "Animal House" is a prime example. Star John Belushi, seen here, helped bring the comedy -- co-written by Ramis -- to life. Warner Brothers/Getty Images
