"Just grab a passing sagecoach..."

"...sagecoach, get it? Sage? Never mind."

Dom DeLuise died yesterday. He was seventy-five.

Mr. DeLuise, a rather prolific actor, has over one hundred roles to his credit from a career that spanned fifty-five years. His most memorable roles were smaller parts, a quick bit of comic relief, especially in Mel Brooks movies.

The title and video are taken from one of my favorite Dom DeLuise characters, Tiger from the second movie of the An American Tail series, Fievel Goes West. Dom DeLuise stars opposite James Stewart.
