Niagara Gazette — In 1975, Roger was the first movie critic to win a Pulitzer Prize. He has written scores of books about motion pictures, including his “Great Movies” series, as well as an hilarious compilation work called “I Hated, Hated, Hated This Movie.” He even published a rice cooker cookbook. He loved going to England to stroll around churchyards and parks. And he wrote a book about that, too. It’s called “The Perfect London Walk.”
Roger’s newspaper opinions about movies were his lifeblood, and they were always highly readable and wonderfully entertaining. After he lost his voice and could no longer appear on television or on the radio, he was still able to keep writing his reviews. Now too, his writing is silent. He will be greatly missed.Michael Calleri reviews movies for Night & Day. His email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
