Today in History
 
Fifty years ago, in 1967, Roger Ebert published his first review in the Chicago Sun-Times on the French film Galia. The larger-than-life film critic (who wasn't so taken with Galia) left an indelible mark on the movie industry and was awarded the first Pulitzer Prize for movie criticism in 1975. Read about why Ebert loathed the idea of ranking movies.
