* Finally, Roger Ebert lived the dream of any movie buff. When he was 25, he was assigned as the ''Chicago Sun-Times''' film critic just as NewHollywood was getting underway with his first review being the classic, ''Film/BonnieAndClyde''. From that good start, he would co-star in a long running TV show, ''Series/SiskelAndEbert'', making him and Creator/GeneSiskel the two most influential and powerful critics in the world to fight for some appreciation of film artistry just as the more commercial [[UsefulNotes/TheBlockbusterAgeOfHollywood Blockbuster Age of Hollywood]] was getting underway. With that, Ebert would be a cherished presence at film festivals like Cannnes, be on a first name basis with the biggest stars of film, write numerous books, short fiction, and even a movie, the silly turkey ''Film/BeyondTheValleyOfTheDolls'', which he had the good grace to laugh about for the rest of his life. Although Ebert was plagued with alcoholism, he later recovered and found the love of his life with Chaz, who would be his rock when his body was ravaged by the cancer that would eventually kill him. Even after he lost his jaw and his voice, Ebert was still able to do what he loved, watching and writing about movies, while taking maximum advantage of the possibilities of the Internet right until his final days. No wonder the only thing Roger loved more than movies, was ''Film/LifeItself''.

-->"But Schneider is correct, and Patrick Goldstein has not yet won a Pulitzer Prize. Therefore, Goldstein is not qualified to complain that [[Creator/ColumbiaPictures Columbia]] financed ''Deuce Bigalow European Gigolo'' while passing on the opportunity to participate in ''Film/MillionDollarBaby'', ''Film/{{Ray}}'', ''Film/TheAviator'', ''Film/{{Sideways}}'' and ''Film/FindingNeverland''. As chance would have it, I ''have'' won the Pulitzer Prize, and so I am qualified. Speaking in my official capacity as a Pulitzer Prize winner, Mr. Schneider, your movie sucks."
