Sydney Pollack Is Dead.

According to the New York Times, Sydney Pollack, a Hollywood mainstay as director, producer and sometime actor whose star-laden movies like The Way We Were, Tootsie and The Firm, were among the most successful of the 1970s, '80s, and 90s, died on Monday evening at his home in Los Angeles.

He was 73. Cancer was the cause of death.

His work in front of the camera was just as impressive, prominently featured in the films of notable directors like Stanley Kubrick (Eyes Wide Shut), Woody Allen (Husbands & Wives), and Robert Altman (The Player). His most recent performance was in the critically acclaimed corporate thriller, Michael Clayton, alongside George Clooney.

I was a fan... and still am.
