Buck Henry 1930-2020
cocreator and story editor of Get Smart
writer of the Graduate and the film adaptation of Catch-22
and the most frequent host of the original version of Saturday Night Live

It was because of his SNL work I knew of Henry, he made cameos just as often even when he wasn't  the host, I think Lorne Michaels regarded him as a mentor.

But its his role in Get Smart all us spy fans should care about.

Rush was (and still is) the soundtrack for my life.  I'm absolutely crushed over this.

RIP Derek Fowlds, Yes Minister and Yes Prime Minister are classic comedies or
Behind the scenes documentaries, hard to tell at times.
