A Tribute to a Great Gentleman

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…

A Pioneer

He had an ease and warmth that appeared to make everyone feel at home.…

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.
