Sadly on this day of love and warmth, we’re heartbroken to report that the world as we know it just became a lot less funny. Another Hollywood great has passed on.
According to Yahoo! News long-time Mel Brooks collaborator, actor Kenneth Mars, whom genre fans will no doubt remember for his glorious role as an earnest police inspector with a malfunctioning artificial arm in Young Frankenstein, died on Saturday of pancreatic cancer at his home in Grenada Hills. He was 75.
Though Mars only dabbled in our genre a single time theatrically, he could also be found in TV shows like the new “Twilight Zone”, “The Ghost & Mrs. Muir”, and “Project U.F.O.”.
At this time we here at Dread Central would like to offer our sincerest of condolences to Kenneth’s friends, family, and constituents. Thanks for all the memories and laughs. You will be sorely missed.
