Moments with Gene (and Roger) #2

More clips marking the tenth anniversary of Gene Siskel’s passing (there are more below this post).

You can see some real irritation in these mostly hilarious and fascinating outtakes, but people who wanted to paint Siskel and Ebert as actual adversaries, rather than sibling rivals, were very much on the wrong track — at least after the first few years. These moments offer an entertaining look into their real working relationship and it gets funnier, and a bit less safe for work, as you go.

And, from the tribute show that followed Siskel’s death, Ebert puts it all into context.
