ET headlines for Sept. 23, 2021.

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Melvin Van Peebles has died. When Melvin Van Peebles set out to make his first movie, he did everything but sell the popcorn at the theaters in which it played. Not only did he come up with the half million dollars it took to make it, he wrote the script, produced the movie, directed it, starred in it - and even wrote the musical score. He also got the credit when “Sweet Sweetback's Baad-asssss Song" overcame bad reviews and an X-rating to earn $14 million. He was 89.
