One of my favorite movies is Young Frankenstein. It was the movie that introduced me to a wonderful actor by the name of Peter Boyle. He managed to bring humor and yet a sense of vulnerability to the Frankenstein monster of Mel Brook's classic comedy. Peter died Tuesday at the age of 71. I'll miss him. I used to see him all the time when I worked at Hollywood Center Studios, Everybody Loves Raymond was filmed on the same lot. I never wanted to bother him, so I never did more than wave hello as I walked by. I kind of regret that now. He never seemed like the type to be bothered by a friendly fan and he likely would've had some interesting stories to tell. So in appreciation to an actor I always liked, I'm putting this small tribute to him on my humble blog. May he rest in peace.
