Your International Talk Like a Pirate Day Primer

19 September 2011 5:00 AM, PDT | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

Ahoy, mateys. If you haven't heard, today is International Talk Like a Pirate Day.

Along with performers including Gene Wilder, Madeline Kahn and Cloris Leachman, he created some of the most sublimely silly moments in Us film comedy.

For all that, he longed for his acting range to be recognised. Asked in 2001 what he would change about the perception of himself, he replied: "That I am only a comedic actor – I would like to be considered for more dramatic roles." Small wonder, then, that he cited as his favourite among his own work the little-seen 1971 drama Desperate Characters, in which he appeared opposite Shirley MacLaine and gave what the critic Roger Ebert called "a deeply felt, »
