Our Members Tributes to Robert Osborne (1932-2017) in General Discussions Posted March 9, 2017 I am deeply saddened to hear of Robert Osborne's death. My sympathies go out to his family, friends, and everyone at Turner Classic Movies. TCM has given me great solace over the past few years. Not just because of the timeless films but because of Robert Osborne. Tuning in each night was like visiting with an old friend who welcomed you with a hearty smile and warmed the room with his insurmountable knowledge of classic films. What a time it was. Thank you, Robert. You will be missed.
