Tag Archives: Alice Drummond

Actress Alice Drummond died from a fall at the spry age of  88.

Her last words were “I’ve fallen and I can’t-”     Nope.  Nope.  Can’t do it.  Too easy.

Drummond will always be remembered as the librarian who was frightened by a full torso apparition who liked to wreak havoc on card catalogs, douse the place with ectoplasmic residue and practiced symmetrical book stacking, just like the Philadelphia mass turbulence of 1947 (because no human being would stack books like that) in “Ghostbusters.”

After her role in “Ghostbusters,” Drummond was able to snag great roles in “Night Court,” “The Equalizer” and “Kate & Allie.”


Her uncle though that he was Saint Jerome


She also appeared in “Ace Ventura: Pet Detective.”  But that movie sucked, so we won’t mention that.

She and her husband, Mr. Drummond, adopted two poor black kids in the 80s, a move that was controversial enough to merit it’s own TV show.

The youngest was a precocious lad with catchphrases like, “What choo talkin’ ‘bout?” who usually outshined his older brother.  Their biological daughter really went downhill, holding up a video store for $164, forging prescriptions and eventually in a Winnebago.  

Either way, their housekeeper ended up with a spin-off.  So, you take the good, you take the bad…

Her most recent feature film was the 2010 comedy “Furry Vengeance,” which starred Brendan Fraser and Brooke Shields.  Remember when that one took the world by storm?  Yeah, me neither.

This hit goes to: ME!  Yes, I am on the board with a whopping 20 points!  More importantly, I’m beating Bean!

Happy pooling,
