Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis on the set of Ghostbusters.

Here's a classic shot of actors Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis on the set of Ghostbusters. The 1984 supernatural comedy, Ghostbusters (1984), was directed and produced by Ivan Reitman and written by Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis. In it, Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, and Harold Ramis are lovably eccentric parapsychologists who start a literal ghost-catching business in New York City. Sigourney Weaver and Rick Moranis also co-star as a client and her neighbor, as does Ernie Hudson who plays Ray, the Ghostbusters' first recruit.

Aykroyd initially conceived Ghostbusters as a project for himself and fellow Saturday Night Live alumnus John Belushi, with the "Ghostmashers" travelling through time and space. Now it’s an iconic film that was ranked 28th in its AFI's 100 Years...100 Laughs list of film comedies. Then in 2015, it was deemed "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant” by the United States Library of Congress.
