WAM April 6-7 Noreen Golfman

Perhaps there was a moment of silence at your local cinema last night. If there wasn't, there should have been.

For many people, Roger Ebert was the movies.

He was the first film critic to win the Pulitzer Prize. His reviews appeared in over 200 newspapers.

He was host of a popular television movie review show with Gene Siskel, which began in the 1970s.

In the last decade Ebert battled multiple forms of cancer. He died on Thursday at the age of 70.

Fillmakers and movie goers all over North America are mouring Ebert...Including, Newfoundland's own film buff Noreen Golfman.

Our Beth Macdonell spoke with her from London, England.
