From Eddie Muller's Facebook page:

"THANKS FOR EVERYTHING, BOB. Excitement over beginning my new "Noir Alley" show on TCM turned to sorrow this morning with news that Robert Osborne has died. He'd been in failing health for quite a while, but we all held out hope he'd recover and reclaim his rightful place on the TCM throne. I called Bob the "Walter Cronkite of American Cinema," since he so brilliantly had earned the trust of the movie-loving public. He is, frankly, irreplaceable.
 
I first worked with Bob when he invited me to share hosting duties at his own film festival in Athens, Georgia. I was primarily there to introduce "Double Indemnity," but he surprised me by asking me to co-host a screening of "All About Eve"—his favorite movie! I knew a fraction of what Bob knew about the film, but he masterfully propped me up and made me look better than I deserved. I learned more about "hosting" from Bob in ten minutes onstage than I had in the previous years combined.
 
We had a great time a few years ago taping a segment for TCM called "A Night in Noir City," and once again I learned a LOT being able to watch him at work in the studio. Since then, it was always a pleasure to share time with him at TCM events, where he proved himself to be even more gracious and generous than anyone who only saw him on TV could really know.
 
A colleague at TCM called me this morning to share the news—he'd expected the call to be about the tremendous response to "Noir Alley." Instead, we commiserated about the network losing its iconic host, and I choked up when he said, "You know Bob adored you, right?" Well, it was mutual.

Robert Osborne was a wonderful man, and a brilliant light in all our movie-loving lives."

Author and historian Jeremy Arnold shared some lovely comments yesterday about working with Robert Osborne during his visit to The Silver Screen Oasis:

 

"With the sad news of Robert Osborne's passing today, I wanted to come back here and add that one of the highlights of doing this book was going through hours and hours of introduction videos from The Essentials broadcasts. All the highlighted quotes in the book by Osborne and the guest hosts are excerpts from their actual on-...air discussions (or, in some cases, from the transcripts of the complete discussion from which the on-air intro was edited). From the very beginning, a point of the book was to have Robert's voice running throughout. I'm a fan of his as much as anyone else, and it was a pleasure to see and hear him again talking about these great pictures. I will also note that I never had any trouble finding a good quote from him -- and this was not always the case with the guest hosts! In three cases, TCM could not locate videos or transcripts of the discussions, and Robert graciously wrote new blurbs specifically for this book. Those were for Double Indemnity, Rear Window, and Once Upon a Time in the West. And of course he wrote a great foreword. His personality is all over the book, and that was intentional. May he truly rest in peace."

Unfortunately, Robert Osborne has passed away in New York.

 From The Hollywood Reporter: http://www.hollywood...t-was-84-727070

 

The onetime actor, mentored by Lucille Ball, wrote The Hollywood Reporter’s Rambling Reporter column for more than 25 years.

 

Robert Osborne, the former columnist for The Hollywood Reporter who as the genial and scholarly host of Turner Classic Movies became a beloved icon to a legion of groupies with gray hair, died Monday in New York, the cable network announced. He was 84. 

 

 

"Robert was embraced by devoted fans who saw him as a trusted expert and friend," TCM general manager Jennifer Dorian said in a statement. "His calming presence, gentlemanly style, encyclopedic knowledge of film history, fervent support of film preservation and highly personal interviewing style all combined to make him a truly world-class host. "Robert's contributions were fundamental in shaping TCM into what it is today, and we owe him a debt of gratitude that can never be repaid."

Author and historian Jeremy Arnold will visit The Silver Screen Oasis this weekend from March 3-March 5!

THE ESSENTIALS: 52 Must-See Movies and Why They Matter


From the TCM website:

"Since its inception on Turner Classic Movies in 2001, The Essentials has become the ultimate for movie lovers to expand their knowledge of must-see cinema and discover or revisit landmark films that have had a lasting impact on audiences everywhere. With a foreward by TCM Host Robert Osborne, Arnold's compilation of films has been deemed a classic by Amazon reviewers.

Based on the hit series, THE ESSENTIALS by Jeremy Arnold showcases 52 must-see movies from the silent era to modern times. Readers can enjoy one film per week, like on the show, for a year of great viewing, or indulge in a movie-watching binge-fest. Each film is profiled with entertaining discourse on why it's an Essential, and running commentary is provided by TCM's Robert Osborne and Essentials guest hosts past and present: Sally Field, Drew Barrymore, Alec Baldwin, Rose McGowan, Carrie Fisher, Molly Haskell, Peter Bogdanovich, Sydney Pollack, and Rob Reiner.

Featuring full-color and black-and-white photography of the greatest stars in movie history throughout, THE ESSENTIALS is the ultimate curated guide to 52 films that define the meaning of the word "classic."

FullSizeRender_zpsupfrfk7v.jpg
Kelly Pantaleoni has her copy of The Essentials: 52 Must-See Movies and Why They Matter signed by author Jeremy Arnold in the lobby of the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel....

Jeremy Arnold is an author, film historian, and classic-movie commentator. His book, The Essentials: 52 Must-See Movies and Why They Matter (Running Press, 2016), is the companion to TCM’s Essentials series. With a foreword by Robert Osborne and running commentary from all past and present Essentials hosts, it explores the background and significance of 52 of the films that have been shown to date on TCM as “essential” movie watching.

Since 2003, Jeremy has written over 500 programming articles and classic film reviews for the TCM website. His 2012 coffee-table book, Lawrence of Arabia: The 50th Anniversary, was published by Sony Pictures Entertainment as the official companion to the Blu-ray release of David Lean’s epic. His essays on the making of Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, You Can’t Take It With You and Mr. Deeds Goes to Town were published by Sony in recent Blu-ray digibooks; a new piece on Lost Horizon is upcoming.

Jeremy also contributed to the 2003 edition of Jeanine Basinger’s book The World War II Combat Film: Anatomy of a Genre. Further essays and interviews with filmmakers and industry professionals have appeared over the years in Variety, Moviemaker, Premiere, and the Directors Guild of America magazine.

To date, Jeremy has recorded six audio commentaries for DVD or Blu-ray releases: Ride Lonesome (1959), Ladies of Leisure (1930), Jamaica Inn (1939), Lured (1947), Sudden Fear (1952), and No Highway in the Sky (1951). Twice he has been engaged as a guest programmer, host, and lecturer aboard Crystal Cruises with classic film themes—including a complete career tribute to Marilyn Monroe.

A native of Washington, D.C., Jeremy resides in Los Angeles but is a lifelong fan of the New York Mets.

Please help us welcome author Jeremy Arnold to The Silver Screen Oasis this weekend. We are delighted to have him visit us this weekend here:

Turner Classic Movies (TCM) is taking up permanent residence in the shadowy world of film noir with the launch of Noir Alley, a new programming franchise hosted by Eddie Muller, founder and president of the Film Noir Foundation. Known to classic film fans as “The Czar of Noir,” Muller will explore the genre from every angle as he introduces a different noir classic each week. Noir Alley will air Sundays at 10 a.m. (ET) starting March 5 with a screening of the movie widely credited as the first film noir, The Maltese Falcon (1941).

Film noir, with its gritty and dark style, was a favorite among 1940s and 1950s moviegoers and continues to be one of the most popular genres of classic film today. Noir Alley will showcase film noir's heavy hitters each week including the below March lineup:

March 5: The Maltese Falcon (1941), the unforgettable classic about "the stuff that dreams are made of," directed by first-time director John Huston and starring Humphrey Bogart, Mary Astor, Peter Lorre and Sydney Greenstreet

March 12: Detour (1945), a remarkable and highly influential film directed on a shoestring budget by Edgar G. Ulmer and starring Tom Neal and Ann Savage

March 19: Act of Violence (1948), a revenge tale about WWII veterans directed by Fred Zinnemann and starring Van Heflin and Robert Ryan

March 26: Tension (1949), an engrossing thriller about a would-be wife killer directed by John Berry and starring Richard Basehart and Audrey Totter

Noir Alley is designed to be an immersive, multiplatform experience for both seasoned noir fans and newcomers to the genre. Fans are invited to engage with the Noir Alley community through social media by:

Joining the conversation on the @NoirAlley Twitter page (twitter.com/NoirAlley) and Noir Alley Facebook page (www.facebook.com/NoirAlley) and tagging #NoirAlley;
Participating in a live tweeting session through the @NoirAlley Twitter handle during the March 5 screening of The Maltese Falcon

Diving into Noir Alley's Twitter and Facebook pages, which will feature a constantly refreshed collection of special content, including exclusive videos from Eddie Muller.

“With this series dedicated to nothing but film noir, we will trace the evolution from its cinematic origins to its influence on more recent films," said Charles Tabesh, senior vice president of programming for TCM. "As one of the foremost experts on film noir and a noir preservationist, Eddie Muller is the perfect guide to lead fans into the shadows each week for an immersive, hard-boiled experience.”

“Film noir offers more than just entertainment,” said Muller. “They serve as a vital part of both film and American history and I’m honored to have the opportunity to share these cinematic treasures – from the well-known classics to the unsung gems waiting to be rediscovered – with TCM's community of movie lovers."

Anyone catch last night's late screening of 1972's "The Ruling Class?" Could this film be on our 2017 roster? I tend to agree with Roger Ebert concerning his estimation of this film's merits. First half-comedy of British eccentricities, Second half-a meandering descent into madness. But as a black comedy, it does have its moments. Coral Browne, "Auntie Mame's" Auntie Vera, and Mrs. Vincent Price, actually looks lovelier and younger than she appeared in the 1959 film of Patrick Dennis' wacky but well-turned out aunt. How does that happen without a miracle or a savvy surgeon? Jack Hawkins ("Zulu" and "The Bridge Over the River Kwai") was one of the producers! Alistair Sim volunteered to play the wacky, befuddled bishop! The humor is a little difficult to navigate if you're not British. "Gurney," the family name is more than likely a possible reference to "Barrow Gurney," a mental hospital near Bristol. Raking over the dust-covered Anglo-Saxon institutions seething with tradition is a staple of this unusual cult film. A cult comedy classic....

"King of Hearts" is now back on the roster of films, so it's official again, and Genevieve Bujold's bio, as well as Sidney Poitier's, is now posted on the special guests list:

King_of_Hearts_470x350-1_zpsecjfps3z.jpg

"Known for bringing a mixture of innocence and intensity to her acting, Geneviève Bujold’s career spans an illustrious five decades. Born in 1942 in Montreal, Quebec, the French Canadian star began her dramatic career at the Montreal Conservatory of Dramatic Art, where she trained in classic French theatre. Her break into cinema came in 1965 when she was recommended to the iconic French director Alain Renais, who cast her in the 1966 film The War is Over. That same year she starred alongside Alan Bates in the Philippe de Broca’s cult classic KING OF HEARTS (1966). She caught the eye of Hollywood producers and starred in the television adaptation of George Bernard Shaw’s St. Joan (1967) for which she earned an Emmy nomination. That same year, Bujold returned to Canada where she married film director Paul Almond and starred in the first of five films of his, Isabel. Bujold made her Hollywood film debut two years later starring as Anne Boleyn opposite Richard Burton as King Henry the VIII in Anne of a Thousand Days (1969). The performance earned Bujold a Golden Globe win for Best Actress and her first Oscar nomination. The 1970s proved fruitful as Bujold continued on in a host of riveting classical performances and Hollywood hits that included working with Brian DePalma, Michael Douglas and Charlton Heston. She stayed busy throughout the 1980s winning a series of Genie Awards in Canada before slowing down in the ‘90s. Bujold continues to work in primarily independent, small-budget films with her most recent being the Sundance Grand Jury Prize nominated film Chorus (2015)."

Anyone interested in a newly restored pre-code at the fest?
Pre-codes are so popular at the TCM Film Festival. I hope we have a chance to see this one in 2017....

One film that certainly blends with our comedic fest theme this season is 1982's My Favorite Year. I hope it will be added to the lineup. Director Richard Benjamin and Marc Linn-Baker have recently introduced it at the Atlanta Jewish Film Festival, which has just concluded. Maybe it was a practice run for April in LA? Will we have our swash buckled? I shall raise a flagon of ale to toast it's arrival on the list!

 

Dick Benjamin would be a great guest!

And so would Marc Linn-Baker!

 

Here's a link to the AJFF announcement for My Favorite Year, and take time to notice who sponsored the screening if you have a few minutes....  ;)

Kingrat, I'm unsure what happened to "King of Hearts," and it's possible that Sidney Poitier may just be "in attendance" but in previous years, "in attendance" usually means some sort of participation in an introduction or concluding remarks. Since we don't have much more to go on as far as comments, what you've stated could be the premise. Even if Mr. Poitier is just "in attendance" in the audience, I'd be thrilled to be there, as would most pass holders.

As for Lee Grant, it says "tribute" in one of the email notifications and on the latest news bulletin, but she's scheduled for a Club TCM interview, so she's probably not the "big interview." No definite subject for the "Live From The TCM Film Festival" interview has been formally announced. We just need to wait for more definite clarification.

Genevieve Bujold's name is still on the guest list, so I'm hoping she'll be at the fest. More later! ;-)

 

Can't wait to see you! I always enjoy watching a film with such a knowledgeable young man!

SueSue, I noticed that King of Hearts is no longer listed with the films announced for the festival. Do you know anything about this? Does this mean Genevieve Bujold is less likely to appear?

 

The press release seemed to suggest that Lee Grant will be the featured interviewee. With her work as actress and director and her experience with the blacklist, she would certainly be an interesting subject. Because the release merely says that Sidney Poitier will be in attendance at the showing of In the Heat of the Night, that may mean that he is not well enough to be interviewed, but will be introduced and receive a thunderous ovation from those in attendance.

With an esteemed actor like Sidney Poitier, many of our TCM pass holders' hearts are aflutter with the anticipation of seeing such a talented, generous man grace the stage at the TCL Chinese Theatre on Thursday, April 6, for the Gala Festival Premiere Screening of In The Heat of The Night.

 

​From The Turner Pressroom Release:

 

"Turner Classic Movies (TCM) will kick off the 8th annual TCM Classic Film Festival on Thursday, April 6th with a 50th anniversary screening of the Sidney Poitier and Rod Steiger classic In the Heat of the Night (1967). The iconic actor Sidney Poitier, who will attend the screening, broke stereotypes and new ground when he starred in this five time Academy Award winner about a black detective from the north who finds himself investigating a murder in a small-town in Mississippi. Producer Walter Mirisch and Director Norman Jewison along with actress Lee Grant and composer Quincy Jones will be on hand to discuss the film which is considered to be a landmark."

Lee Grant and Sidney Poitier....

 

"Actress Lee Grant will be feted with a tribute featuring a screening of her debut film Detective Story (1951), along with The Landlord (1970) and a conversation in Club TCM.

 

Many of us are hoping that Sidney Poitier will be the Live From The TCM Film Festival extended interview. Hope you all are as excited as I am about these latest special guest additions as well as the 8 new films.
