Death of THE director

May 28, 2008 by Julie Summers Walker, Managing Editor

Sydney Pollack died on Sunday at the age of 73. He succumbed to a short fierce battle with cancer.

If you’re a movie buff like I am, you know he directed some of the finest–“Out of Africa,” “The Way We Were,” and “The Firm.” He also acted in many of his movies such as “Tootsie” and “Michael Clayton.” He was also an accomplished jet-rated pilot and aircraft owner. We profiled him in AOPA Pilot in 1998.
