Profile of the Day: Roger Ebert
Today we remember legendary film critic Roger Ebert, who passed away yesterday after a long battle with cancer. The first film critic to ever with a Pulitzer Prize, Ebert gained national fame with his trademark “thumbs-up and thumbs-down” film reviews on his long-running syndicated televisions series At the Movies with his partner-in-crime, the late Gene Siskel. Just days before his passing, it was announced that Ebert’s cancer had returned. He left a final blog post titled, “Leave of Presence,” in which he explained his plans to slow down, but continue to do what he loved. “I’ll see you at the movies” were the last words he wrote to his readers.
