Film historian Robert Osborne, the effervescent primetime host of Turner Classic Movies since the cabler's inception in 1994, has died. He was 84.
Always liked him.
May he RIP

Great voice. He brought relevance to films I've never even heard of; he made me want to stay tuned to watch. RIP

And his love of films always came through too, without getting too arty.

Tacitus +1. His discussions and introductions were fun to watch and hear.

He had a wonderful way of describing films and a wonderful voice too. He'll be missed.

Robert Osborne was television greatness. His smooth and calming voice was distinctive as he introduced each movie that was shown during primetime hours with an encyclopedic and teaching manner. After American Movie Classics transformed itself into "AMC", Mr. Osborne and Turner Classic Movies remained, becoming true beacons of the presentation and preservation of classic films.
I believe TCM is in good hands with their two young on-air hosts, and although Mr. Osborne has passed, his steady influence will continue to exist fresh and strong at the network for the foreseeable future.
Godspeed, Mr. Osborne, and thank you very, very much.

His commentary was often more entertaining than the movie itself.

He was an asset for an already great channel. What a concept! To present a classic movie full length, unsullied with irrelevant commercials and given background by a well-educated and charming host. He will be missed.

And there's going to be a 48 hour tribute to the man ,by TCM.
