Roger Ebert deemed too grumpy for ‘Life Itself’ movie poster

Thursday July 3rd 2014


Here’s an archive photograph of Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert, taken to promote their long-running TV show At The Movies.

And here’s the new poster for Life Itself, a documentary about Ebert from Hoop Dreams director Steve James.

No prizes for spotting that those last two images are in fact the same photograph, albeit with Siskel cropped out of the movie poster to shift the focus onto Ebert.

There is, however, a more subtle difference between the two…

Can you spot it yet?

Cheer up Roger, you’re a movie star now.
