R.I.P. Roger Ebert.

On April 4th 2013 the world said good-bye to Roger Ebert. Most famous as a film critic for the Chicago Sun-Times since 1967. Ebert was an American journalist, film critic, and screenwriter. In 1975, he was the first film critic to win the Pulitzer Prize for Criticism. I can remember Roger Ebert in my youth watching him on the PBS show Sneak Previews with critic Gene Siskel, both helped popularized the televised film reviewing. Their trademark thumbs up or thumbs down could make or break a movie. Ebert co-wrote the screenplay for the 1970 cult classic Russ Meyer film “Beyond the Valley of the Dolls” Roger Ebert was highly regarded as a film critic for his grace and respected opinions. R.I.P. Roger Ebert. We will miss you.
