on 27 December 2013
Legendary film critic Roger Ebert, who influenced the success of the Hollywood film industry for several decades, died 4 April 2013 at the age of 70. Ebert worked for the Chicago Sun-Times for 40 years, and battled publicly with cancer for more than a decade toward the end of his life. In their obituary, The New York Times quotes President Obama, who commented on his death by saying, "For a generation of Americans—especially Chicagoans—Roger was the movies."
