Next week, he's off to Nashville for a special Judy project that's so sick you'll all drop to the floor from excitement (but more specifics on this epic project at a later time), and then - over Memorial Day weekend - he'll be the special guest at the Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills, again speaking about Oz.

Great, inspiring interview with Robert Osborne on TCM, Also, I think you might've known my buddy's dad Rudy Fio as a kid.
I don’t experience it as most people do, since I work throughout the weekend, but I have as good a time as the attendees, who come from far and wide and spend the entire time beaming. Because there are so many events going on at all hours, hosted by Robert Osborne, Ben Mankiewicz, and an array of filmmakers, historians, and special guests, I can only provide a (brief) diary of my own experience. On Friday I treated myself to one extracurricular screening: a digital restoration of Cy Endfield’s Zulu, shot in the widescreen Technirama process.
Finally watched the TCM "Private Screenings" interview with Robert Osborne. Alec Baldwin barely got a word in edgewise - the guy loves to talk, and has some GREAT stories! I did not know he had a daily column in the "Hollywood Reporter" for years before he took this job. Nice point that back in the '70's knowledge was so unorganized that no one really had an easy to access record of who or what movies had been nominated for Oscars - until he researched it all and put it into a book. He is 82 - what will we do when he retires or passes? He wears his knowledge so lightly, and passes it on so generously. Unlike that schmuck Ben Mankiewicz, who seems to out to prove he knows the most of anyone in the room.
Folks I'm not sure ifI will be able to make it to practice today. I am still at the hostpital with Okeefe. My replacement is coming, but they just left.

It concerns someone after the PC era, but I enjoyed the interview with Robert Osborne last night on TCM very much. April 14th, 1994 was the first night of TCM and Alec Baldwin interviewed him. I learned a lot. Lots of celebrity accolades for him from so many stars.
Robert Osborne just noted that this film's director also directed the TV series Flipper.

Robert Osborne has never ridden a horse. Recently he had his opportunity. Boo gets on a horse for the first time. The horse starts to trot, then gallop. Boo gets scared and falls to the underside of the horse. Boo is getting trampled by the unknowing horse and at the brink of being knocked out, when Willy the Wal-Mart worker unplugs the electric horse.
Watching a lot of TCM's 20th anniversary stuff this week. The "Private Screenings" segment with Alec Baldwin interviewing TCM's Robert Osborne is very interesting. My envy is trumped by fascination of all the legends who've helped Osborne shape his career. I know some folks think my movie stuff may be trivial but it's been a great outlet for me through the years.

Well here is something I never thought would happen. One of my biggest “Guilty Pleasures” playing on Turner Classic Movies late tonight -- John Boorman's Zardoz (1974). Often listed as one of the worst films ever made, I personally don't see it that way. To quote the director, “A lot of this can be very laughable, really, if you don't enter into the spirit of the thing.” Very true, but if you look past the costume design (which does bring an element of uniqueness to the film), and focus on the thematic ideas Zardoz presents, there is much to consider here. I personally can't wait for the Robert Osborne intro. I'd put money on his writer in this case screwing this one up. Too easy to make fun it and not as easy to really examine. Give it a chance.
Yesterday I had the pleasure of meeting and listening to a discussion by TCM's Robert Osborne at the National Portrait Gallery in DC. Thought I would share a few photos of my ensemble. Peplum suit, blouse, clamshell hat, Sweetheart brooch and mink collared coat all circa 1940s. Unfortunately, the reception room had terrible lighting so I had to significantly lighten our photo together. And please pardon my cheesy face, I was REALLY excited to meet Mr. Osborne. Talk about a genuine and wonderful guy!

Robert Osborne at the National Portrait Gallery - love Turner Classic Movies
Thoroughly enjoyed seeing TCM's Robert Osborne, being interviewed here by Amy Henderson, curator of "Dancing the Dream" at DC's National Portrait Gallery last night. What a charming, delightful host and film historian -- we are lucky to have him! It was followed by a screening of "Flying Down to Rio" (1934), a quirky but enjoyable classic.
Watching a movie with Robert Osborne tonight at the Portrait Gallery took me back to my Turner Classic Movies days.

Anyone catch our CEO on talking this past weekend?
Maybe this is the year I get to meet Robert Osborne (instead of just staring at him from afar).
Osborne is not given nearly the credit he deserves. Practically inventing modern film study and reporting Osborne is a truly unique American product and the father of today's critical review. You can travel the world and you will not see another person as talented as Osborne. When he discusses a film he leaves nothing out. You can watch his pre and post film comments and see just how important his analysis is. Americans tend to take him for granted. They see him on TCM. Most probably have no idea just how learned he is and how serious he takes his work. Osborne is a national treasure who, hopefully, will receive his proper due soon. Not many people can say they created an entire field of study. Or establish high standards for what he founded. It's almost impossible to imagine what the field of movie history would be like without his leadership and ethics. Whoever honors great Americans seriously needs to take a look at him. Maybe the Kennedy Center Honors. He certainly has earned it.

Lady Be Good is the title of an MGM musical film which was released in 1941. The film starred dancer Eleanor Powell, along with Ann Sothern, Robert Young, Lionel Barrymore, and Red Skelton. It was directed by Norman Z. McLeod and produced by Arthur Freed. This was the first of several films Powell made with Skelton. Although Powell received top billing, the main stars of the film are Sothern and Young. They play respectively Dixie Donegan, a would-be lyric writer and Eddie Crane, a struggling composer. The film takes its title and theme song ("Oh, Lady be Good!") from the 1924 George and Ira Gershwin Broadway musical, Lady Be Good, but otherwise has no connection to the play. According to film historian Robert Osborne in his introduction to a broadcast of the film on Turner Classic Movies in August 2006, the film was devised as a vehicle to launch Sothern as a musical star at MGM, however since she and Young were known primarily as light comic stars, Powell was brought in for a supporting role but given t ...

Robert Osborne's favorite leading man was never nominated for a Golden Globe | Golden Age of Hollywood via
I heard the most ridiculous thing on a local radio show promoting investing (i think) The female promoter played three audio clips and asked the other person on the show to guess the movies. The first was from 'The Graduate' He said, 'Oh yes, the actress playing Mrs. Robinson was Lauren Bacall (!). Then the woman AGREED and he told her that Bacall and Dustin Hoffman were the same age (!!) but they 'made her look older' (!!!) Mrs Robinson was Anne Bancroft, folks. Their three actual ages? Bacall born in '24, Bancroft in '31 and baby Hoffman in '37. Here is a casting paragraph from Wikipedia. Read it and try to imagine some of these people in these roles ! According to TCM host Robert Osborne, "Mike Nichols wanted Doris Day for Mrs. Robinson, Robert Redford for Benjamin Braddock, and Gene Hackman for Mr. Robinson." But there were numerous actors and actresses considered or tested for, or who wanted, roles in the film. Day turned down the offer because she believed the film was not for her.[citation needed] ...
