Roger That

There’s a long, fascinating piece about Roger Ebert in the current Chicago magazine that’s highly illuminating about the critic and what makes him tick.
Did you know Ebert used to be an alcoholic before quitting 25 years ago? That he’s survived cancer three different times? That he wrote several films for Russ Meyer, other than “Beyond the Valley of the Dolls,” that were never made? That the “Ebert & Roeper” hasn’t made money in years? (I blame Roeper). All that and more- the piece is long, but worth your time.
