The Legacy of Harold Ramis

Remembering the Ghostbusters star and writer four years after his passing.

February 24th, 2018

Four years ago the world mourned the loss of the brilliant, kind and loving Harold Ramis.

While he was a prolific, multi-disciplined writer, director and actor who worked on a range of great films such as Animal House, Meatballs, Caddyshack, Stripes, Back to School, Groundhog Day and Analyze This -- he is often most recognized for Ghostbusters.

The upcoming book Ghostbuster's Daughter, written by daughter Violet Ramis Stiel, reflects on the life and legacy of her father, providing readers with an extraordinarily candid and insightful look into the man who helped shape modern American comedy.

Funny, endearing, and vulnerable, Ghostbuster's Daughter takes readers into the private life of the American comedy icon, from his humble roots in Chicago and ascension into Hollywood stardom to his personal philosophies on life, love, and filmmaking.

While the book offers a comprehensive history of her father's career, Ghostbuster's Daughter also provides a profound homage to their special father-daughter relationship. Violet weaves anecdotes about her father's unique and devoted parenting style among stories of her own unconventional upbringing, creating a vivid and dynamic portrait of the man behind the movies. A distinctly offbeat memoir as well as a charming family story for the ages, Ghostbuster's Daughter is an intimate look at one of America's preeminent comedy filmmakers.
