RIP Sidney Pollack
click any photo to enlargeI was very sad to read of the death of Sydney Pollack, who is hailed as a director and producer of films, but whom I will miss for his entertaining and occasionally-compelling screen performances. He also was a highly-regarded acting teacher, and I suspect that was his true calling.
He studied under Sandy Meisner. I regard Meisner as the seminal American acting teacher of the twentieth century. As you may know, I never studied under Strasberg or Uta Hagen, but I did successfully avoid studying under Meisner too. Chickenshit that I am.
