    Dear Larry,
    If you have more eps after Gene’s death, I think it would be great to upload them. Its still one half of S&E and I for one would like to see all of Ebert’s post-Gene work.

      Hi Clarke,

      I am still working on my other site right now dealing with astronomy. Plus, my father had a stroke back in February, so I am with him right now. I can do what you are requesting, but would that take us away from the theme of this site?

        Thanks Larry and sorry to hear of your father.
        No, I don’t think it would take anything away at all. In fact, I think the show must go on attitude they had, would strongly suggest finishing out the website with all of Ebert’s reviews. No different from the clips you have of just Gene or just Roger on a news segment, etc. I for one would deeply appreciate it!

          One more thing, the way you have “Disney Years”, Tribune Years”, etc., you could do “Post-Gene Years”, or “Roger Continuing with Other Critics”. Something like that.

        Sorry to hear about your dad. By the way, if you go on youtube, you will find some Siskel and Ebert shows you missed, like Worst of 90 and 91.

      Hi Michael, I just haven’t been feeling well. I am 67, and it seems in the past four months, my health hasn’t been as good. I have one video I have grabbed from YT that I will get up today or tomorrow. Unfortunately, the few videos I have left are either Roger and Gene giving speeches or interviews. I do have one where the two review The Breakfast Club, but guess what got cut on the videotape? Anyway, any help from you or anyone else would be most appreciated!

        Hi Larry, sorry to hear about your health. I hope you get better soon. I have pretty much the same: interviews and commentaries that Roger gave; no reviews. There was a full episode on YouTube that had their reviews of Outrageous Fortune, Radio Days, and more. However, I think it had been taken down. There’s another episode on YouTube that’s not on the IMDB page from 1981, where they reviewed the teenage movie trends. It’s still on there.

        By the way, do you still have the best of 1970s show that aired in 1979? That and the episode of “The Doctors Are in” (83 or 84) are still absent, unfortunately. Thanks.

    That youtube show with Radio Days has “Jan 31 1987” in the title, for anyone having trouble finding it. Took me several minutes to find it because the movies reviewed aren’t listed in the title.

    Those four parts are available, but the part that is missing is apparently the review of Raising Arizona. Maybe it was originally posted and then taken down for copyright reasons. ???

    I noticed that also. It’s been posted awhile and I watched them then, but I can’t remember if it was ever posted. Oh well.
