David O. Selznick produced (and co-scripted and even directed bits of) that 1946 western epic Duel in the Sun (available on DVD) in a wild, headlong attempt to outdo in every way his success seven years earlier with the epoch-making Gone With the Wind; as well as to forever extinguish (his then-lover, soon wife) Jennifer Jones' wholesome Song of Bernadette image (a 1943 Oscar to her for that, a role Selznick helped her get) and replace it with Sex Goddess of All Time.

Most critics make their reputation by writing scathing and very amusing reviews. Not Roger Ebert. He made "thumbs up" his signature, and wrote his best pieces about films he liked or adored. It's much easier to write a negative notice, but it takes real skill to write engrossingly about something you value. Roger made a career out of that. He definitely accentuated the positive. And brought a lot of people to good movies.
