Neil Simon and Barbara Harris — We Mourn the Loss

Posted on September 6, 2018 at 8:00 am

We mourn the loss of the 20th century’s greatest American comedy writer, Neil Simon, and of Barbara Harris, the effervescent star of films like “Nashville,” “Freaky Friday” (the Jodie Foster version), and “A Thousand Clowns.”

Here Harris appears in one of Simon’s films, “Plaza Suite,” with Walter Matthau as a suburban mother meeting with her lecherous former boyfriend, a Hollywood producer, for the first time since they were teenagers.

May their memories be blessings. And may this sad news inspire us all to revisit their best work.
