Very sad news, but not exactly unforeseen, what with his increasingly smaller role onscreen these past few years.

I have so many great memories of him on TCM: like him quoting the original Variety review of Mothra (1960) or the marathon of Thin Man movies one New Years Eve, with Robert actually drinking along to the boozy films and delivering fantastic trivia even as alcohol began to impair is always impeccable poise. Robert Osborne will always represent my idea of sophistication, and he was a superfan who got to turn his fandom into a career! How cool is that?

I love the guest appearance Robert Osborne did on Harvey Birdman, Attorney At Law where he presented an "award-winning short" from the classic Birdman series (with the characters redubbed). He does it totally straight-faced.

Godzilla and King Kong tonight on TCM. The channel is even having a "Godzilla vs. Kong" Twitter contest for the King of the Monsters title!

Next month TCM is marathoning monster-on-the-loose films, mostly from the 1950s, every Thursday. Some kaiju included: Mothra (on the 4th), Rodan (on the 11th), and Godzilla, King of the Monsters! (18th).
