Two big names in showbiz history passed on today.

Comedian-actor-writer Carl Reiner (father of writer-director-actor Rob Reiner) died at 98.

And the great composer Johnny Mandel left us at the age of 94.

Both live long lives and filled many other lives with joy and music.

From Tony Bennett's Duets album, Tony (who recorded this song many times) and Spanish singer Juanes sing one of Mandel's classics.


And a Mandel composition that many of us know and love, either from the movie or TV show (the show used an instrumental version, not the song)

Carl Reiner was famous for many things over his long career. but his work with Mel Brooks was among his best.


And he created "The Dick Van Dyke Show", on which played the character Alan Brady, from which this clip is taken
