R.I.P. Alice Drummond, the Librarian from ‘Ghostbusters’, Has Passed Away at 88

Sad news to report as The New York Times has announced the passing of character actress Alice Drummond, who performed regularly on Broadway in the 60’s and 70’s. She passed away Wednesday at the age of 88 in the Bronx.

Drummond was known to many horror fans for her role as the librarian in the opening of 1984’s Ghostbusters, where she encountered the first ghost seen in the series. She was also an uncredited role in the TV series “Dark Shadows” as Nurse Jackson as well as playing Carolyn in Tales From the Darkside: The Movie in the “Cat From Hell” segment. Others might recognize her as Mrs. Finkle from Ace Ventura: Pet Detective.

We send our deepest condolences to her family and friends in this sad time.

    If ghosts were real, death would not matter.

      I think it would. Death is permanent, life temporary.
      It’d change everyone’s perception.

    I can’t believe she just died.

    Holy shit, I can’t believe I didn’t recognize her from Ace Ventura.

      She is Ray Finkles mother. She has one of the best lines in the movie. “What a sports nut huh??”
