Sydney Pollack, R.I.P.

Sydney Pollack, the Academy Award-winning director of ”Out of Africa” and ”Tootsie,” died from cancer yesterday at the age of 73.

Sydney Pollack was also a very accomplished actor, having appeared in several acclaimed films, including Michael Clayton, Eyes Wide Shut, and my personal favorite, Woody Allen's Husbands and Wives, in which he excels in a leading role.
