In Memory of Richard Schickel from John Mulholland

In memory of Richard Schickel - Colleague, friend and on camera participant Cooper & Hemingway: The True Gen

Richard Schickel

What a run, man. Your body of work is secure, down all the days. As is your place in the critical pantheon. Thanks so much for making The True Gen a far better and more lucid work. I'll miss the emails. Your wit and warmth and spot-on observations. No doubt you've already found a battery of colleagues upstairs who listen rapt as you savage The Searchers, and so many other hallowed works you just "knew" were terribly over-rated. You marched to your own drummer! What a run, man.
