Washington Post, Apr. 4, 2013 (Roger Ebert, a Chicago movie critic whose weekly TV show with crosstown rival Gene Siskel made him one of the most widely recognized and influential voices in film, died April 4 in Chicago. He was 70. During his 46-year tenure at the Sun-Times, Mr. Ebert penned thousands of reviews examining every genre of film, from French avant-garde to Hollywood blockbuster, and in 1975 he became the first film critic to win a Pulitzer Prize. But it was through bickering about movies onscreen with Chicago Tribune film critic Siskel that Mr. Ebert revolutionized film criticism, pulling it off the page and into living rooms across the country)
