An Interview With Robert Osborne

I came across a New York Times interview with Robert Osborne of Turner Classic Movies today. It's two years old, but fans of TCM will find it an enjoyable read.

Be sure to watch the slide show tour narrated by Osborne.

Interesting. I at first thought he wrote all those intros he does, but then I assumed that, like any TV "show," they would hire other writers and that he's just reading a teleprompter.

I'm a little torn knowing that he writes them all, because some of the puns and "jokes" he throws out are just so bad! But I guess all of us writers have our off days. :)

I really miss Bob Dorian from the grand old days of AMC, though. He was my first classic-movie host.

It was Sophia Loren day Robert Osborne gave a great narrative of her as they showed various clips from her films. He was apparently as in love with her as almost all of her leading men (and non-leading men. Heck, all men!). But there was no doubt, he htoo had survived Sophia fever, er uh, fervor.
