Roger Ebert, the Pulitzer Prize-winning film critic for the Chicago Sun-Times who became a national figure via his three-decade run on TV, died Thursday in Chicago. He was 70. "There was no 'off camera' Roger," said one of his longtime on-air partners, Richard Roeper. "He was just as passionate, smart, stubborn, genuine and funny behind the scenes as he was in the public eye. He was a great writer and an even better friend. They can remake movies, but no one will ever be able to recreate or match the one and only Roger Ebert."
