I'm still reeling from the shock.  Rest in peace, Mr. Osborne.  You will be deeply missed.

QUESTION for you scheduling aficionados: what ended up being the last movie he ever introduced on TCM?

Just curious.

The last film Robert Osborne introduced by himself was UNDER THE VOLCANO on February 21, 2016.

 

(For the record - He did introduce THE FRENCH CONNECTION but with guest programmer Candice Bergen on June 14, 2016.)

"They're not shining the stars as bright
They've stolen the joy from the night
Wish you were here
Wish you were here
Wish you were here"

What a joy it was to meet him. What a gift he gave us in sharing his love and knowledge of classic films.

For those of us who were there from the beginning, TCM will never be the same.

Safe travels Ozbeau!

Some people never appreciate what they have until they lose it.

Just logged in to relay my condolences.  Somehow, I thought he was just retired and taking it easy.  Very sad.

Definitely sad. Don't know what else to say about it.


"You've had a few hours given back to you from life. A few hours in which to change your minds and your hearts. When you came into the grounds of this inn, you came into a place as it was a year ago today. You were in your own time, but the house and garden and Gwyneth and I are in the time of last year. The day the bomb hit. When you go away and walk up the road you will have spent a night in an inn. But if you look back from the crest of the hill, the halfway house will not be here...but if you remember, it will be as you remember a forgotten snatch of song. It will be a picture before your eyes. Gone before you realize it is there. Or an echo in the hidden places of your mind. But you have been here...and the world is what you make it." -- Mervyn Johns, THE HALFWAY HOUSE.

I can't say I didn't see this coming, but it is a shock nevertheless. The Father of TCM. 

 

Presumably, all TCM programming for a while will be devoted to his memory.
