Daily One Inch Button - Sydney Pollock

Though a lot of people know him for his minor role on the television show Will and Grace, actor / director Sydney Pollock had accomplished quite a lot by the time he was on the small screen as the proud parent of his gay son. I watched one of his masterpieces, They Shoot Horses, Don't They? when I was taking a film class at Rutgers. (That film provided the inspiration for the episode of the Gilmore Girls titled They Shoot Gilmores, Don't They? Same theme, naturally. He was also brilliant in Woody Allen's Husbands and Wives - yet despite so many years of hard work, I can't help but feel that there was the potential for much more had he been given the time.
