Hollywood Icons: Roger Ebert

Roger Ebert in better days.

I remember the very first time I encountered the name Roger Ebert. I was in grade school then, and I discovered a magazine about Jim Henson's muppets, cleverly titled Muppet Magazine (if I'm not mistaken, the one with Kirk Cameron on the cover).

This one. I think.

Inside was a film review written by Siskel and Ebert. I distinctly remember that day (although the details of the review escape me), because Gene Siskel was my namesake, and Roger Ebert's name sounded weird. Like "Herbert" or "Robert" with missing letters. Although I'd like to point out that I've never been influenced by his reviews. Ever.

Roger Joseph Ebert. 18 June 1942 ─ 4 April 2013.
