That was my reaction before reading your post. May he R.I.P.
Director Sydney Pollack dies of cancer - CNN.com
I absolutely adore Tootsie, one of my favorite movies. And of all the directors who have acted, he's probably my favorite.
Rest in peace, Mr. Pollack. You will be missed.
Ditto. He was great in front and behind the camera.
Wow- very depressing news. Not only a fine director but a hugely likable on screen persona. He was actually one of my favorite modern supporting players, though he didn't act all that much.
I didn't even realize he was ill. I'm gonna miss him.
same here. He always seemed so vibrant and looked much younger than his years. Very sad. RIP, sir. Thanks for all the good work.
Really sad news. Tootsie is my all-time favorite comedy, and his scenes opposite Dustin Hoffman were nothing short of perfect. A really solid filmmaker (and actor) who will be missed.
We've lost a great Hoosier.
Thanks for all the fine movies Sidney!
Terrible loss for real movie fans.
RIP, Mr. Pollack, you left behind a nice body of work in the world of cinema.
Yep. As an actor, he was in everything from The Twilight Zone to Eyes Wide Shut to The Sopranos.
My grandma went to highschool with him and his brother Bernie back in the day. We just watched Tootsie on Friday night. I really appreciate Sydney and will continue to love his work.
All the best to his family.
Not as big a fan of Tootsie as I am of The Firm and Absence of Malice. A very diverse body of work nonetheless.
Rest In Peace.
Pollack was one of a kind as a director. Rest in peace sir, you've earned it.
I am really saddened by this news. Back in the year in which he won the Academy Award for Out of Africa, the Chicago International Film Festival hosted a tribute to him at the Biograph Theater. I got there early to secure a good seat in the auditorium and then went out to get some popcorn. While walking back to my seat, there was a man near the exit door looking nervous and pacing. I walked past him and lo and behold it was Mr. Pollack. I cautiously approached him and mentioned that I really admired his work. He thank me and proceeded to tell me how nervous he was about this evening. We chatted about what it was like to work with Robert Redford. I was struck by how down to earth he was and by his kindness and graciousness to just a fan. I have never forgot this encounter.
Very sad news... one of those guys where I can't think of anything he did I didn't like.
Wow. That's really surprising. RIP.
So great in "Husbands And Wives".
He just recently gave a beautiful eulogy for his friend/partner, Anthony Minghella. Journalists mentioned that he was gravely ill at the time.
Very sad for both losses.
