As Hollywood mourns the loss of one of its great film critics, tons of tributes and memories of Roger Ebert are flowing in after news of his death on Thursday.

Known for his bold and honest film reviews, Ebert was unapologetic with his opinions and didn’t hesitate on speaking his mind. No one knew this better than his longtime colleague and fellow movie critic, Gene Siskel.

Though the two were partners on camera, their steadfast personalities frequently clashed off camera. We dug up a classic video of outtakes showing Siskel and Ebert butting heads while shooting a promo for their show Siskel & Ebert At The Movies, and shows that the two friends didn’t always get along.
