Sydney Pollack: Exit

Sydney Pollack Oscar For Out of Africa.jpgSydney Pollack, Academy Award-winning director, producer, actor, and writer exited the stage called life May 25 yielding to the icy hands of cancer.

The greatest success of this son of Russian-Jewish immigrants came with the 1985 film Out of Africa starring Robert Redford and Meryl Streep. The movie won Best Director and Best Picture Awards.

Although he is dead now, the more than 40 movies Sydney Pollack has directed and produced through sheer hardwork as well as his children Rachel and Rebecca will immortalize him.

Our hearts go to his numberless fans, friends, students, colleagues, family and bereaved wife, Claire, and to countless others grieiving loved ones unknown to the public.
