Cross Stitch Design Southern Belles and Roger Ebert Will Be Missed

Cross Stitch Design Southern Belles
Posted by Drew Zeitlin:

Hello everybody. As you probably already know the entertainment world lost one of its best yesterday. The famed movie critic Roger Ebert passed away at the age of 70. Roger Ebert was more than just a film critic, he and fellow film critic Gene Siskel brought the movies to you,with their show Sneak Previews that started in 1978. For the first time the American public could see a clip of the upcoming movies and get a synopsis of those movies. Now with the internet we get so much information about a movie, we don't even have to see it the movie to know what it's about. Back in the late 70's and 80's this was the only way to find out if you wanted to go see a certain movie. You might agree or disagree with Siskel and Ebert's review of a movie but a least you knew about the movie. Siskel and Ebert ended Sneak Previews with either a thumbs up or thumbs down on the movies that they just reviewed. A whole generation of movie goers would give you a thumbs up or thumbs down if they liked a certain movie. Roger Ebert you will be missed.

The question that must be answered is how best to honor the memory of Roger Ebert?  For that important answer we turned to our trusted ally the digital vaults at abullrun. The answer is the Cross Stitch Design Southern Belles. This is the perfect answer. Roger Ebert was best known for reviewing movies and the all time movie at the box office adjusted for inflation is Gone With The Wind. Even though the cross stitch design Southern Belles is not associated with Gone With The Wind, it does represent the time period and the era and lifestyle of that movie. Of course Gone With The Wind is set in the "Old South" and the "Old South" is gone with the wind with the Civil War.
