30 - Dusty Cohl

Dusty Cohl
, a friend to Toronto Sun entertainment writers and film critics for decades, died Friday of cancer at Sunnybrook Hospital. He was 78.

There will no doubt be kind words from Sun staffers about the co-founder of the Toronto Film Festival in Saturday's paper. For now, Roger Ebert's tribute to the Dusty he knew says it all about the captain of the Floating Film Festival.

Roger, who first met Dusty in 1977, flew to Toronto on Tuesday to say his goodbyes.

The Globe and Mail, the National Post and the Indo-Asian News Service also had obits online early Saturday.

Bruce Kirkland's tribute.
