Sid Caesar died... age 91. I knew the comedian had inspired the Alan Brady character from The Dick Van Dyke Show, above, and King Kaiser from the 1982 movie My Favorite Year, below...

...but I didn't know this:

He was given to explosive rages. With one punch, he knocked out a horse that had thrown his wife off its back, a scene that Mr. Brooks replayed in his movie “Blazing Saddles.”
