Richard Pryor

I've always been a huge fan of Richard Pryor. His appearance on Lily Tomlin's short-lived TV show is seared into my memory. One of my favorite movies is "Blazing Saddles" which he co-wrote. One of my favorite movie lines is his from "Silver Streak" when Gene Wilder is in blackface: "I just hope we don't run into any Muslims." A great, groundbreaking entertainer. He will be missed.
