During a recent sorting of the books of my personal library, I came across this gem by Roger Ebert I'd purchased years ago and never gotten around to reading.

My mistake. I'm sure I thought it was a collection of Ebert's reviews, but instead it's feature pieces and interviews with celebrities spanning the entire decade of the 1970s. Ebert approached his subjects with a keen eye and sympathetic ear, and spun vignettes that puts most of what passes for feature writing today to well-deserved shame.

An excellent book of interviews from the '70s and early '80s with greats from the Golden Age of film like Groucho Marx and George Burns and then-current hot young stars like Brooke Shield and Sylvester Stallone. Ebert keeps himself out of most of the interviews and instead focuses on the aura around these icons. The chapter following Robert Mitchum as he gets lost in Ohio, and a later attempted interview with Orson Welles, are hilarious, and a chapter dealing with drug and alcohol abuse spotligh ...more

More than just a collection of essays with directors and movie stars, this can be read as insightful, touching, often funny short fiction... Ebert's skill as a writer was never so clear to me as when I first read this book. It doesn't matter if you're interested in Walter Matthau and Warren Beatty, or Groucho Marx and Lee Marvin... in Ebert's hands, these familiar faces and personalities become great characters. I read and re-read this one.

A highly readable collection of interviews with famous movie figures, conducted by critic Roger Ebert. I've always loved his reviews, but never knew how great his interviews were. Worth reading for tidbits like the meeting between Charles Bronson and Ingmar Bergman.

A collection of interviews with screen legends that I remember fondly, especially on hearing of Ebert’s death today at age 70.

Roger Joseph Ebert was a Pulitzer Prize-winning American film critic and screenwriter.

He was known for his weekly review column (appearing in the Chicago Sun-Times since 1967, and later online) and for the television program Siskel & Ebert at the Movies, which he co-hosted for 23 years with Gene Siskel. After Siskel's death in 1999, he auditioned several potential replacements, ultimately choo
