Gene was a funny fellow, on the show he was often intellectual, on print he was deplorable. His criticisms were essentailly "i like this" or "i don't like this but I wont give any support to my reasons, if I have them." Michael Willmington does a much better job as his replacement at the Chicago Tribune. He replaced Siscal(sp?) as the head critic several years before GS passed. The trick to finding a good critic is one that gives you enough information through clear writting that you can draw your own conclusions regardless of what the critic thought of the film.
