From CNN:

    Academy Award-winning director Sydney Pollack has died. He was 73.

    Sydney Pollack's notable films include "Out of Africa," "Tootsie" and "The Way We Were."

    Pollack's agent, Leslee Dart, said Pollack died of cancer Monday afternoon at his home in Pacific Palisades.

    Dart said Pollack was surrounded by his family.

    Pollack's biggest success was the 1985 film "Out of Africa" starring Robert Redford and Meryl Streep, which won Oscars for Best Director and Best Picture.

    Pollack's other notable films include the comedy "Tootsie" starring Dustin Hoffman and the romantic film "The Way We Were," which paired Redford and Barbra Streisand.

Very sad news, and an end to a very amazing career.

Not a bad actor, either, and it's sad that he's slipped under the radar of most Americans and he's just one of those "That Guys."

I enjoyed his bit parts in movies as much as his direction. I thought he had a nice turn in A Civil Action as an attorney that gives John Travolta advice at the Harvard Club.

I also liked his AT&T Wireless commercial that aired before movies about "we don't interrupt your phone calls, don't interrupt our movies"

Dads is quite fun, I think. Brenda Song has great comedic timing.
