Marcel MarceauMarcel Marceau, the world’s best known mime passed away this weekend at the age of 84. Full story at Playbill.

Although he spent his life acting some of the most memorable characters in silence, he did speak once on film in Mel Brooks’ 1976 classic, Silent Movie. (who else but Mel could accomplish this feat?…). See below for film clip.
