When I saw Roger Ebert’s face for the first time in that Esquire article I was so, so sad. He and Gene Siskel were a great force in movie-making (and reviewing) and their opinions mattered so much to me as a youngster and a young man. I loved watching them and loved their show. I remember they’d always have something great to say about all of the movies I loved as a kid.
Here he is talking to his wife on the Oprah show. After losing his jaw to cancer, he he has his voice back. Using a MacBook Pro and software that grabbed little snippets from his TV appearances, he is able to speak in his own voice again, even if it’s a bit robotic. Thanks for this, CereProc. Honestly.
