Memories From a Dangerfield Fan
The way the newspaper reports presented it, it seemed like Rodney was on the way to recovery. However, he was 82, and I guess it was just too much for his body. We will miss him. There was only one 'No Respect' comedian, and it goes without saying that Rodney Dangerfield was an American Original.
My favorite film of Rodney's was 'Back to School'; his jokes in that one simply had me laughing so hard my sides hurt (especially the part about his screen wife cheating on him with midgets)! Of course, I always enjoyed his standup act; there was no cursing (he may have done so in his club act, but I never saw one) or wallowing in the gutter, which seems so much in vogue for today's generation of comedians. Nevertheless, Rodney could still have them rolling in the aisles.
Rodney Dangerfield, you now have the utmost in respect from your many, many fans throughout the world. Godspeed, and condolences to your family...
