An Art Tribute to Bill Murray

When getting together ideas for my piece to contribute to the show, I couldn't decide on just one Bill Murray performance. There are TOO MANY wonderful movies and characters that he has brought to life...so ended up picking my favorite Murray moments.

Movies Featured: The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, The Royal Tenenbaums, Rushmore, The Darjeeling Limited, Fantastic Mr. Fox, Caddyshack, Groundhog day, Ghostbusters series, Meatballs, Stripes, The Man Who Knew Too Little, Garfield.

I think Caddyshack was my first Murray love, with Ghostbusters, Meatballs and Life Aquatic coming in close behind. What's your favorite Bill Murray movie or comedy sketch?

I'll leave you with a quote from Bill Murray's character in Caddyshack.

"This crowd has gone deadly silent, a Cinderella story outta nowhere. Former greenskeeper and now about to become the masters champion ... He's on his final hole. He's about 455 yards away, he's gonna hit about a 2 iron I think ... IT'S IN THE HOLE!" - Carl Spackler
