As Aaron told you Tuesday, director Sydney Pollack died early this week.  Sadly, he wasn’t the only one to go.  Dick Martin, best known for being the co-host of the variety show Rowan and Martin’s Laugh-In (for which he won an Emmy), passed away of respiratory problems this past weekend.  As a comedian, host, director, and producer Martin worked on several projects duing his fifty-year career in Hollywood.  Following his stint on Laugh-In Martin would go on to a career behind the camera directing TV episodes for series such as Newhart, Sledge Hammer!, Family Ties, and The Bob Newhart Show as well as continuing his acting career by showing up in guest spots on shows such as The John Larroquette Show, Diagnosis Murder, The Love Boat, and Coach, and as a host and celebrity contestant on several game shows.  Check out some memorial clips inside.
