Awaiting more surgery for cancer in his salivary gland and jaw, film critic Roger Ebert faces the world and says he’s not afraid: “I was told photos of me in this condition would attract the gossip papers. So what?… I have been very sick, am getting better and this is how it looks. I still have my brain and my typing fingers. We spend too much time hiding illness. There is an assumption that I must always look the same. I hope to look better than I look now. But I’m not going to miss my festival. Why do I want to go? Above all, to see the movies then to meet old friends and great directors and personally thank all the loyal audience members who continue to support the festival. At least, not being able to speak, I am spared the need to explain why every film is ‘overlooked,’ or why I wrote ‘Beyond the Valley of the Dolls.’ Being sick is no fun. But you can have fun while you’re sick. I wouldn’t miss the festival for anything!”
