TMZ: Dom Deluise passed away last night in hospital in LA. The man who made millions of people laugh and brought much joy into the world, starred in many funny movies like: The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, The Cannonball Run (which I saw with my sisters at the Kaikohe movie theater with a childsitter called Heather Lilly Bell, lol!), The Cannonball Run II, Blazing Saddles, History of the World, Robin Hood: Men In Tights, Spaceballs and Silent Movie. He also hosted Candid Camera.
For the tears of laughter and joy you ushered into the world Mr Deluise, we all say thanks! :)
