    I admire her work.

    "Nora Ephron, the Oscar-nominated filmmaker and director behind such hits as "When Harry Met Sally" and "Sleepless in Seattle," is very ill, a representative for her publisher said Tuesday.
    Nicholas Latimer of Alfred A. Knopf confirmed her condition hours after celebrity columnist and friend Liz Smith published what appeared to be a memorial for the writer. "

    As we reported, Nora was gravely ill up until her death today -- reportedly suffering from cancer. She was 71.

    Ephron scored 3 Academy Award nominations in her illustrious Hollywood career ... and was widely considered one of the most powerful women in the entertainment industry.

    When I first heard this, I thought, "Seventy-one, she was so young". Interesting how much younger certain ages seem the older we got.

    I also liked her work, and own at least two of her movies. She really had a talent. She had a great sense of humor.

    R.I.P. Nora Ephron

    I know without looking that I still have at least 2 of your books on my old shelf downstairs...

    (hoping a Mod will fix the thread subject...this woman deserves her name spelled correctly)

    I drove her often. I don't think I ever saw any of her films. She was very nice.

    Same here. She looked great, was lively etc. I recently drove her and her sister (she's famous, too, I think) to some charity function. Alot of celebrities treat their chauffeurs and other staff like carp (the stories I could tell you, LOL), she wasn't one of them.
    RIP
