RIP, Roger Ebert

By Rosalie Tirella

The guy who got me even MORE excited about movies than some very good movies! Film critic Roger Ebert died this past week. He’s in movie heaven now. Once, when asked which film he would want to watch over and over while frolicking with the bare-assed cherubs, Ebert said CITIZEN KANE. For his eternal movie concession stand treat? HD vanilla icecream.

For me, though I don’t plan on departing any time soon, it would be THE AWFUL TRUTH, starring Cary Grant and Irene Dunne. I don’t much care for movie theater snacks, so I would ask the movie gods for Indian food, vegetarian, of course. Very spice-y!

Here is my favorite scene from Orson Welles’ CITIZEN KANE, a grand movie made by a 20-something genius who looks beautiful here:
