If you’re a comedy fan, you probably had seen some of the early legendary comedies starred and written by Steve Martin including “The Jerk”, “Dead Men Don’t Wear Plaid”, “The Man with Two Brains” and “All of Me”. All those films were directed by comedic genius Carl Reiner, whose film credits also include “Oh, God!” and “Where’s Poppa?”. He was also probably best known for creating “The Dick Van Dyke Show”. Reiner died at his home in Beverly Hills, on June 29, 2020, aged 98, in the company of his family. Even though he was very old, that didn’t stop him from being active. Just last year he was an Emmy nominee, which made him the oldest nominee ever. Throughout his career, Reiner won many awards and honors including nine Emmy Awards, one Grammy Award, and The Mark Twain Prize. He was also the father of accomplished director Rob Reiner.
