Roger Ebert has made great strides since the start of his battle with cancer and the multiple complicated surgeries that vanquished the critic's voice. Technology has restored his ability to communicate, but there's something extra special about hearing the movie maven comment on his life and career with the voice many of us remember from his show 'At the Movies.'

Gary Rutkowski's 2005 interview with Ebert for Archive of American Television runs an hour-and-a-half long, but it's well worth your time. The interview is filled with many personal anecdotes and Ebert 101 factoids that you might not have known. It's always strange when people rag on Ebert for being too serious -- and he certainly can be -- but the Chicago Sun-Times critic isn't just about the highbrow.
