EBERT: My senior year at Illinois State, I and a batch of my fellow ISU Film Society officers had dinner with Roger Ebert before an on-campus presentation. I remember him as being convivial and approachable, willing to talk about any movie that we brought up. I also remember several of us considered bringing up Beyond the Valley of the Dolls, a movie that none of us had seen at the time but knew by its exaggerated reputation. None of us did, though, because the man was just a nice guy to sit at the dinner table with.
(I've since seen and grown to love Dolls, by the way.)
