(CNN) – Mike Nichols, legendary filmmaker, masterful storyteller, and one of the few people to win an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony award, died Wednesday.
Nichols, 83, was a masterful storyteller whose most famous final scene, was from only the second film he'd ever directed – "The Graduate."
His characters illustrated, and acted out our lives, loves, failings, from the dissolution of a marriage in "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf," to our willingness to betray ourselves to please those we love in "Birdcage".
