Irish-themed Movies

With St. Patrick's Day coming up, I'm thinking about movies with an Irish theme, but only feel-good movies, nothing too gritty. I've come up with the following so far: The Quiet Man  Little Nellie Kelly  Darby O'Gill and the Little People  Dancing…Continue

TCM Remembers Robert Osborne

A Tribute to a Great Gentleman

Posted by Louise Maranzana on March 8, 2017 at 11:41am 0 Comments

This is indeed a sad day for all of us fans of Turner Classic Movies as we say good bye to legendary film historian, the face and voice of TCM, Robert Osborne. Robert generated true warmth, wit, and charm like a favorite uncle who would come into our homes and delight us all with his encyclopedic knowledge of behind the scenes facts, anecdotes, and trivia about the greatest films of Hollywood's Golden Era. Robert's passion was the movies, and the joy they brought to other movie fans both young and old alike. He was truly loved and embraced by his many fans and friends for his calming presence, compassion, friendly demeanor, and gentlemanly style that catapulted him into a world class host. We will still watch TCM, but it won't be the same without our favorite film scholar introducing our beloved movie classics and giving insightful closing remarks after the film in that cheerful resonant voice. Robert, we will dearly miss you and hope to see you at "the after party". Rest In Peace.

A Pioneer

When I found TCM I felt as though I had come home. Robert Osbourne seemed to embody the essence of the GAOH, grace, style and a true gentleman. His knowledge about the movies, the stars, the interactions, the industry was amazing. When you watched him interview an actor it was more of a conversation than an interview. He had an ease and warmth that appeared to make everyone feel at home.

I love Ben Mankiewicz and having a "Hollywood family" still carry the torch in the business is awesome.No one can replace Robert, but Mr. Mankiewicz has done a great job during Robert's absence and I think there is no one better to fill the void.

TCM was a departure from the commercial filled, reality, in your face programming of today and, Robert Osbourne was the perfect person to educate, entertain and share his love of the Hollywood with the viewers.

Rest in Peace Robert Osbourne, you will truly be missed. 

     

Never a Truer Gentleman

Robert was a true gentleman and always handled himself as such.  He had a warmth and kindness that caught everyone up in his interest in the motion pictures he spoke about.  I will miss him and his enthusiasm when I view films on TCM.

Anyone who loves classic movies knows this man! He was our host and commentator for many years on our beloved Turner Classic Movies channel. I always loved his intros and outros. He was a genuine movie lover and it came across when he spoke. We'll miss you, Mr. Osborne. I pray that you will rest in peace. Here is a news release about his passing from Variety Magazine:
