And, Robert Osborne is the perfect companion for a several hour Gore Vidal talk time. Wow, you just said a mouthful. Wouldn't that be great? Maybe they could do a special interview with Robert Osborne, at least have Gore Vidal host an epidose of "The Essentials" focusing on his all time favorite film. Like you, I'd watch it even if they never got around to showing the movie.
