So Long Roger Ebert
Roger Ebert passed away. He was know for his witty repartee with the late Gene Siskel as they reviewed contemporary movies on the TV program Siskel And Ebert At The Movies. The fact that the two were film critics for rival newspapers in Chicago helped fan their stardom. Ebert worked for the Chicago Sun-Times. He was the first film critic to win the Pulitzer Prize. He was also the first film critic to have a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame. Ebert had been battling cancer for many years.
