Photos: A Look Back At Roger Ebert In Hollywood
It's been a couple days, but we're still reeling from the death of film critic and awesome human being Roger Ebert. Ebert loomed large in the film world, but he wasn't really a Hollywood guy: he grew up in Urbana, Illinois, made his name in Chicago and stuck around. Still, that's not stopping us from looking back through the archives at some of his Hollywood moments: award dinners, festivals, book-signings and getting his star on the Walk of Fame.
