I am surprised a bigger deal hasn't been made of his passing. Neil Simon is a major legend.

True.

Bad timing, same week as Aretha Franklin and John McCain.

Similar to Farrah Fawcett passing same day as Michael Jackson.

"Murder by Death" was absolutely classic satire of murder mystery novels-films of the '30s-'70s.

Has been parodied many times including "Family Guy."

Come on you guys! MH, you said that no one paid attention to Farrah Fawcet dying because same day as MJ dying. So I say Farrah Fawcet died? LOL. Would a red blooded dude like me who grew up in Charlie's Angels era not know that FF ain't around? You usually get me.

Loved the Odd Couple (movie). And the scene with Matthau, Lemmon, and 'the Pigeon Sisters' was witty, comedy gold that's rare to come by in Hollywood these days.
