Marty Feldman was a comic genius. Not many Americans know that in his homeland, Marty was the British equivalent of Woody Allen... namely an accomplished writer and performer. Marty's seminal BBC series laid the foundation for "Monty Python" as many of its members worked on his writing staff.
Marty should never be forgotten and the full true nature of his incredible talent should forever stay on our radar. He was much more than "Aye-Gore."
Here is a scene from Marty Feldmans little seen movie from 1980 In God We Tru$t where three decades ago, through Andy Kaufmans portrayal of a television evangelist named Armaggedon T. Thunderbird, he accurately predicted the political ambitions of the religious right that are manifesting today. Despite his wall-eyes, Marty had a clear vision of the future.
