R.I.P. Paul Gleason, 1944-2006.

Principal Vernon was surely the inspiration for all the legendary school principals of the silver screen who followed in his footsteps...Ed Rooney, Principal Max Anderson, Dundelinger (from The Simpsons)...I can't think of any others.

Zen Wizard - Exactly.

jasdye - Indeed.

dubin - Don't forget Dr. Nelson Guggenheim (Rushmore), Mr. Nolan (Dead Poets Society), and Principal Joe Clark (Lean on Me). And, of course, Mr. Belding.
