Another Grand Monsieur Disappears

Actor and director Sydney Pollack died today, ending a talented career of monstre de cinéma, and what had been a wonderful weekend on a very sad, tragic note.
Another grand monsieur orphans generations of movie buffs. So long, Mr. Pollack. Your leave us with a legacy that will enchant many more generations to come. Tributes in NYT & LAT.
