Ebert, the first film critic to win a Pulitzer Prize, died April 4, 2013, the US newspaper that employed him for more than four decades said. He was 70. Ebert -- who just two days ago announced in a blog post that he was taking a break from his main job -- succumbed to cancer after a long battle, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.
