President Obama on Tuesday paid tribute to the late Harold Ramis, the Chicago-born actor, writer and director who was famous for films such as “Caddyshack,” “Ghostbusters,” “Animal House” and others.

Ramis died Monday due to complications from autoimmune inflammatory vasculitis. He was 69.

“When we watched his movies … we didn’t just laugh until it hurt. We questioned authority. We identified with the outsider. We rooted for the underdog,” Mr. Obama said in a statement. “And through it all, we never lost our faith in happy endings.”
