About the Author

Roger Ebert (1942-2013) was a Pulitzer Prize-winning film critic for the Chicago Sun-Times. In 1975, he teamed up with Gene Siskel of the Chicago Tribune to host the popular Sneak Peaks movie review program on PBS, which he continued for more than thirty-five years, including at Tribune Entertainment and Disney/Buena Vista Television. He is the author of numerous books, including Awake in the Dark: The Best of Roger Ebert; the Great Movies collections; and a memoir, Life Itself.


"Ebert's take-no-prisoners essays packed with insidery insights will send movie lovers back to the sofa for a second look at old favorites like Cool Hand Luke and My Fair Lady while introducing more offbeat picks like Sansho the Bailiff and Pixote."--Parade, on the Great Movies collections
"Ebert offers informed critical appraisals, as well as background on the movies' making and significance, that make these pieces rewarding for film buffs and ideal introductions for first-time viewers."--Booklist, on the Great Movies collection
"No one has done as much as Ebert to connect the creators of movies with their consumers. He has immense power, and he's used it for good, as an apostle of the cinema."--Richard Corliss, Time, on the Great Movies collection
"Essential. . . . especially for those owning Ebert's first collections."--Library Journal, on the Great Movies collection
