Roger Ebert died today at the age of 70 after losing a long battle with thyroid cancer.
Roger Ebert was a film critic at the Chicago-Sun Times for 46 years, and spent 31 years reviewing movies on television. He was first diagnosed with a tumor on his thyroid in 2002 and underwent three surgeries. Despite losing part of his jaw in 2006 from the illness, leaving him unable to talk or eat, he still continued to be a proflific movie reviewer using his website as his medium.
Ebert will forever be remembered as a renowned film critic. He was the first to ever win the Pulitzer Price, and his name was added to the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2005.
Rest in Peace, Mr. Ebert. We will forever miss your insight and critiques of our favorite films. Thank you for 46 years of wonderful entertainment.
