While I have reported elsewhere that Robert Osborne will not, in fact, be hosting TCM's Olivia De Havilland festival -- those hosting duties will be filled instead by journalist Dave Karger of NBC's TODAY -- Osborne's involvement in this series will still extend beyond his column in the Now Playing magazine.


Osborne has narrated a new on-air promo for TCM in which he reflects on the life and career of the remarkable Ms. De Havilland. This brand new segment is currently available for viewing over at the TCM Backlot, and it will premiere on TCM on July 1. This marks the first newly-produced on-air piece on which Osborne has appeared -- at least, in voiceover form -- since his extend leave of absence began four months ago.

Olivia De Havilland was visited at her Paris apartment by TCM's Robert Osborne, in this photograph taken in the autumn of 2013.


Here's a link to Robert Osborne's article on Olivia De Havilland, originally published in the July 2016 issue of TCM's Now Playing guide: http://www.tcm.com/t...-Havilland.html.


We won't know for sure until July 1, but I'm guessing that the occasion of Ms. De Havilland's centenary will likely mark Robert Osborne's on-air return to TCM, at least on Friday nights next month.

The oldest living Best Actress winner. Will she reach Luise Rainer at 104 ? I sure hope so.

Nice job, Barton. I love the photos. The first one, from 1933, is adorable.
