    Re: Sydney Pollack died

    He gave a terrific supporting performance just last year in 'Michael Clayton.'

    I had the opportunity to meet him once years ago at the premiere for a film his company produced, 'The English Patient.' It was especially memorable because I also was introduced to "his date for the evening", Harrison Ford. What a night!

    What a lifetime of films to his credit. He contributed so much to modern cinema, his is a great legacy.

    Re: Sydney Pollack died

    I was saddened to hear of this. Sydney Pollack has been one of the good guys of Hollywood for many, many years, as both a director and as an actor. His performance as Dustin Hoffman's agent in 1982's Tootsie was priceless.

    He'll be missed.

    This news brought a cloud to my day as well. Always interesting to watch as an actor and rewarding to watch films he directed. He'll be missed.

    TCM Honors Sydney Pollack on Monday, June 2nd with a 4-Film Salute
    TCM will revise its primetime schedule on Monday, June 2nd in order to honor the late director Sydney Pollack (Out of Africa, They Shoot Horses, Don't They?):

    Here is the new lineup for Monday, June 2

    8:00 PM The Slender Thread (’65) (his directorial debut)
    10:00 PM Three Days of the Condor (’75)
    12:00 AM Tootsie (’82)
    2:00 AM Jeremiah Johnson (’72)


    TCM REMEMBERS SYDNEY POLLACK, 1934-2008

    One of the rare Hollywood talents who excelled at both acting and directing, Sydney Pollack fell haphazardly into a craft that eventually earned him three Oscar® nominations and one Academy Award. Thanks to his early career as an acting coach, Pollack developed a reputation for being one of the best - if not the best - director for actors to work with. But his filmmaking style - or lack thereof - was without a signifying mark or defining element with which audiences could identify. In fact, it was quite easy to walk out of the theater having enjoyed the movie without ever knowing Pollack was the director. Be that as it may, Pollack crafted excellent films in his four decades as a filmmaker, adding such luminous titles like "They Shoot Horses, Don't They?" (1969), "Three Days of the Condor" (1973), "Tootsie" (1982) and "Out of Africa" (1985) to the American filmmaking canon. Despite a lack of visual flare, American cinema would have suffered without Pollack's steady contributions.
