R.I.P. Irving Brecher died Monday at Cedars-Sinai at the age of 94. Not familiar with that name? You're more than likely familiar with his writing: He wrote Meet Me In St. Louis , Life of Riley , the Marx Brothers's At the Circus and Go West , and did uncredited punch-up on The Wizard of Oz . From Go West : "S. Quentin Quale: Didn't we meet at Monte Carlo the night you blew your brains out?" [USA Today ]
