Robert osborne, ’54: the face of turner classic movies.
For more than 20 years, Robert Osborne , ’54, has been the face of Turner Classic Movies (TCM) television network as its primetime host and anchor. Since the show first aired in 1994, Osborne has been vital to the TCM brand and an accustomed presence to families around the world.
Last year, New York Times writer Dan Barry called him a “one-of-a-kind cinematic savant, cramming delectable tidbits into brief intros and outros, dissecting films with guests and conducting intimate interviews with stars of a certain age.” Osborne has also been written about in many other publications, like the Washington Post, and has interviewed countless film icons, including Lauren Bacall, Shirley MacLaine, Mickey Rooney and Tony Curtis.
One might not expect that a Hollywood Walk of Fame star now residing in New York is the product of rural Colfax, Washington. He attended the UW, studied journalism and was a member of the Delta Upsilon fraternity.
“He has become recognized as the leading authority on movies and a familiar face in most American living rooms,” said former fraternity brother Ted Van Dyk , ’55. “On top of that, it should be said, he is a good human being who is modest and, unlike many in Hollywood, does not take himself too seriously. He is respected for that in an industry of huge egos and narcissism.”
After graduating and serving in the Air Force, Osborne moved to Los Angeles. He had a short stint in acting and then worked for many years as a columnist for The Hollywood Reporter covering all aspects of the movie, television and Broadway worlds.
“He is a major historian and chronicler of the motion picture industry,” said Osborne’s DU ‘Little Brother’ Doug Ramsey , ’56. “As a primary columnist for The Hollywood Reporter, he illustrated public understanding of an important sector of American cultural life and the economy.”
Osborne is also known as the official biographer of Oscar because of the series of books he’s written on the subject of the motion picture industry’s annual Academy Awards – his latest being “80 Years Of The Oscar: The Official History of the Academy Awards,” which was written at the request of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science. Since 2006, he has been the official red carpet greeter at the annual Academy Awards ceremony. He has also hosted the annual Robert Osborne’s Classic Film Festival in Athens, Georgia, since 2005.
This fall, Osborne was inducted into the UW Department of Communication Alumni Hall of Fame. Read more about this award and other inductees.

Turner Classic Movies hosts allay fears for network's future: 'All is well'
"This feels like a really promising point in TCM's development and not a cause for alarm," says host Ben Mankiewicz.
Maureen Lee Lenker is a senior writer at Entertainment Weekly with over seven years of experience in the entertainment industry. An award-winning journalist, she's written for Turner Classic Movies, Ms. Magazine , The Hollywood Reporter , and more. She's worked at EW for six years covering film, TV, theater, music, and books. The author of EW's quarterly romance review column, "Hot Stuff," Maureen holds Master's degrees from both the University of Southern California and the University of Oxford. Her debut novel, It Happened One Fight , is now available. Follow her for all things related to classic Hollywood, musicals, the romance genre, and Bruce Springsteen.
Through the rise of cable, the golden age of prestige TV, and the pivot to streaming, one network has remained a cozy place to hang your hat — Turner Classic Movies.
Founded in 1994 by media mogul Ted Turner, the network's mission is unique: to program around-the-clock viewing of uncut, commercial-free classic films. They air along with insightful introductions by knowledgeable hosts (beginning with TCM's founding father Robert Osborne) , and are organized around new themes each month. It's film school from the comfort of your couch.
But TCM has not remained the same in its nearly 30-year history. It has added hosts: first, Ben Mankiewicz, and now, a team of five that includes Mankiewicz, silent film expert Jacqueline Stewart, film noir czar Eddie Muller, cinephile Alicia Malone, and EW awards correspondent Dave Karger. In recent years, it's rebranded , shaking up its graphic style, adopting a new motto, "Where Then Meets Now," and expanding the definition of classic, as we all must do as time marches on.
With every bump TCM has endured, one truism has remained: Its fans hate change. That isn't surprising for a network built on preserving and celebrating the value of our cinematic past.
"People feel helpless because stuff comes at them on social media and they assume the worst," Muller says. "But the changes that you're going to see are a natural progression. A movie from the 1980s is now fortysomething years old. You have to start thinking about classic film in a slightly different way. It doesn't mean we're abandoning any core mission that we started with. It just means the mission is expanding."
But the latest shake-up behind-the-scenes, Discovery's purchase of TCM's parent company Warner Bros. and radical changes at the behest of new CEO David Zaslav, have ignited a new wave of "worst case scenario" theorizing, fears that aren't wholly unfounded given Zaslav's belt-tightening approach to Warner Bros. content on the whole.
As the merger has progressed, audiences have watched as HBO Max Originals, Looney Tunes shorts, and more have vanished from streaming platforms , while finished films have been shelved before premiering. TCM hasn't been immune to company-wide layoffs, and a recent announcement that the network would no longer be partnering with Fathom's Big Screen Classics screening series could understandably be perceived as a red flag.
From an outsider's perspective, the general sense has been that Zaslav doesn't understand (or worse, doesn't care about) the value of the history he's inherited. That sentiment has reached such a fever pitch, the National Society of Film Critics recently bestowed their Film Heritage Award on TCM with distinctly pointed language, citing "a service too easily taken for granted by audiences and worthy of the utmost care and attention from its corporate owners."
While the award is another vote of confidence for the network, host Dave Karger thinks it might be gilding the lily a tad in its language. "It's lovely because a group like the National Society of Film Critics knows what they're talking about," he tells EW. "But I have to say, I have felt nothing but love from people that I've met in high places at this corporation. Yes, it's a challenging time and there's been some changes at TCM, but overall, we're in a really good place and are supported by the powers that be at this company, who are true fans of this network."
It would be easy to write such a statement off as peddling the company line. But on a chilly January day on the Warner Bros. lot, the evidence that these words are sincere is abundant. Nestled in between two soundstages (the likes of which witnessed the making of Casablanca, The Adventures of Robin Hood and other classics), the five hosts are filming a promotion for the network beneath a theater marquee bearing the network's "Where Then Meets Now" pledge.
You can see all the trappings of a film set, from a video village and a hair-and-make-up team, to craft services and an extensive lighting and camera crew. The hosts are gussied up (though Mankiewicz is wearing ripped jeans: "Eva-Marie Saint is going to be very disappointed," he quips, an inside joke for longtime TCM festival-goers).
In short, it's reflective of a clear financial investment that belies any theories of imminent dismantling. Zaslav himself makes a surprise appearance on set, eager to introduce himself to the hosts. Once they're done filming, they're extended an unexpected invitation to his office.
Returning from that visit to sit down with EW, the hosts are aflutter with what they've seen and heard in the studio head's office. "He's so enthusiastic in his support for TCM, and it's genuine," says Stewart, who is also the Director and President of the Academy Museum. "TCM was on in his office. That's not just some myth." They also recount how Zaslav had a copy of Muller's book on his coffee table and was quoting from recent segments that aired on the channel.
"He knew stuff about all of us, and he told his assistant to make sure to tell us TCM is always on," adds Mankiewicz. "He didn't just turn it on for this."
Of all the hosts, Mankiewicz has been with the network longest, joining the team in 2003 as TCM's second-ever host. He's weathered a sea of changes, including mergers with AT&T and Discovery, the decline of network television on the whole, and the death of beloved original host Osborne.
"This feels different," he says, optimistically, of Zaslav. "We've had a lot of changes in the last five years, one after another. New bosses. When [Zaslav] says that they value what we do and that we're going to be continuing what we do in the foreseeable future, I believe him. And he's ready. He is connected in this town, and he's prepared to use that muscle to make sure this town turns out to support us."
To hear Mankiewicz tell it, Zaslav is more interested in honoring the legacies of the Golden Age of Hollywood studio heads than outsiders might realize. He's currently renovating legendary Paramount leader Robert Evans' former home with the aim of moving in, and he's the first Warner Bros. CEO in years to request that Jack Warner's desk be taken out of storage and placed in his office. "He understands movie history," adds Mankiewicz. "He wanted to work at Jack Warner's desk. That mattered to him. I'm not sure that it's mattered to some of the other people."
The five hosts seem to share a collective sense that none of this is blowing smoke. "For the most of the time we were up [in his office], Zaslav talked about the value of curation," says Mankiewicz. "He gets what we do. He's not a guy who thinks, 'Let's just show the movies.' He gets what TCM does and why it's important."
"All is well right now," says Malone. "Nothing's changed. We all feel very protective over the channel and we know how precious it is, and increasingly rare. So, not on our watch."
Beyond the hosts, some of the industry's biggest names are also carrying that "not on our watch" banner, a fact that Mankiewicz says was hammered home by the outcry from A-list directors in response to AT&T's decision to shutter TCM's initial streaming platform FilmStruck. "It's when you see Steven Spielberg , Barry Jenkins , Martin Scorsese , Paul Thomas Anderson , Francis Ford Coppola — all the guys saying, 'No, protect this,'" he says.
TCM is the rare niche network that has a fervent, loyal fan base, a status the pandemic brought into sharp relief. "I'm more aware than ever of our devoted viewers," says Karger. "I think about them more than I ever did before all of these changes. Because they have stuck with us through us filming intros on our iPads, doing make-up ourselves, and lighting in our apartments or homes."
Each host has dozens of stories about fans who reached out to them during the COVID-19 lockdown, celebrating the network as a comfort in a dark time, or writing to ask them to turn their camera to a different angle in order to see more of the books on their shelf. "It was a super intimate thing to do," Stewart says of filming her intros from home. "Being so new to the network at that time, it really hammered home the degree of connection people wanted to feel."
That level of connection is also something the hosts are feeling with Warner Bros. for the first time. "There's such a logical connection between this defining studio in the history of Hollywood and the classic channel to tell that story," Mankiewicz says. "This is a promising point in TCM's development and not a cause for alarm."
As Warner Bros. celebrates its 100th year in 2023, TCM will play an essential role in the proceedings, including tributes at the channel's annual film festival and on-air segments from the hosts that will tell the story of the studio's history. "Our understanding is that TCM is going to be a centerpiece of the overall company celebration of the centennial anniversary," says Karger.
The hosts also see this new bond between studio and network as a way to demonstrate to those at Warner Bros. who are unfamiliar with TCM's mission what they have to offer. "It shows how we can be of service and what we do in this broad swath of networks," says Malone. "We're the history keepers."
The network wants to grow. Stewart says there are active conversations about how they can further the relationship between TCM and the exhibitions and screenings of the Academy Museum.
All of this goodwill and reassurance doesn't necessarily mean TCM will remain frozen in amber, never to change as the world shifts around it. During nearly 30 years of existence, it's founded a wine club, launched a feted podcast, and curated an annual film festival and classic film cruise, all with the purpose of reaching their fans in as many ways as possible.
"This industry is changing, and there's not a cable channel in the world that isn't reevaluating how it does business," reflects Mankiewicz. "That's a truism that is inescapable. But that said, the sky is not falling, and there is a place for TCM. Discussions about how this channel is going to look going forward should be seen as welcome, not as, 'Oh, no, what's happening?' We are planning for a changing future that includes TCM. That's how people ought to look at it."
With that in mind, those who love the network hope it's just the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

Gabriel bitton film: splendor in the grass (1961) hometown: marrakesh, morocco current residence: gainesville, fl.
Gabriel Bitton was born and raised in Marrakesh, Morocco, and thought of himself as the kid from Cinema Paradiso. He grew up with a love for film, going to the movie theaters every Saturday. When he was 15, he saw the filming of The Man Who Knew Too Much in the streets of Morrocco, and in high school he won a film camera as a prize in a contest. He moved to France for college, and then came to the U.S. to do his post-doctorate work at Harvard. He is now Professor Emeritus of environmental engineering at the University of Florida. Gabriel is introducing Splendor in the Grass —growing up, he imagined that teenage life in America was just like the film. He married a woman from Columbus, Ohio, which, in his words, is “as American as apple pie,” and he felt the film matched up to his reality in the U.S.
Classic Couple: As a young man, how did Splendor in the Grass (1961) inform how you felt about love and romance ?
Frankly, 60 years have passed and it is difficult to remember precisely my feelings about love and romance at that time. I may add that I loved the scenes in high school where boys and girls appeared to be care free. They were wearing Jeans and sneakers, and that was in contrast to my French high school with a rather stuffy atmosphere. My fellow students were less relaxed and less cool that the American kids I saw in Splendor in the Grass.
Moreover, I was also very much influenced by the many French movies I saw as a teenager in Marrakech, Morocco.
Classic Couple: How does Splendor in the Grass , or another classic movie, represent your own American dream?
Splendor in the Grass is the story of two American families in the 1920s. It is frankly a depressing story that ended in the Great Depression of 1929. It was a low point in American capitalistic system. Afterwards, America recovered and produced the “greatest generation” that saved Europe and the world from Nazi tyranny.
On a more cheerful mood, my American dream was fulfilled by westerns like Rio Bravo that was filmed in 1959. Westerns appealed to me because of the wide space and the grandiose vistas of the American west.
Classic Couple: Morocco has been the setting for a number of classic films. Is there one that you believe offers the best representation of your home country?
Yes indeed. A movie that jumps at me is the classic movie Casablanca , which was shot in 1941 but, unfortunately, entirely shot in Burbank, California. The movie that displays the beauty of my hometown, Marrakech, is T he Man Who Knew Too Much , which was directed by Alfred Hitchcock, starring James Stewart and Doris Day. As a high school student, I had the privilege to be present during the shooting of one of the scenes of the movie. I was impressed by the cool directing style of Hitchcock.

Ash nega film: the champ (1979) hometown: addis ababa, ethiopia current residence: atlanta, ga.
Ash Nega was born and raised in Ethiopia. At the age of 14, his mother sent him to the U.S. to attend the Oneida Baptist Institute in Oneida, Kentucky, where he could get a scholarship. Despite being being in the company of other Ethiopian students, he had a difficult experience there; on arrival, he learned that it was primarily a reformatory school and he felt even further isolated living in a city that was almost completely devoid of diversity. He didn’t speak with his mother for 6 years after being sent to America, but he recognizes now that it was the best thing she could have done for him. He committed to excelling at his school and, after graduating high school, he earned a scholarship to Cumberland College in Kentucky. In 2006, he and his wife, Titi Demissie, opened Desta Ethiopian Kitchen in Atlanta, GA, which today has two locations and is widely considered the best Ethiopian restaurant in the state. He’s very proud to apply American business principles in running his restaurant.
Growing up, he would watch American movies with his family in his community’s one-screen theater. He remembers being struck by The Champ (1979), which he is introducing on TCM, and other stories about overcoming adversity and succeeding as the underdog.
Classic Couple: What about The Champ (1979) most resonates with your experiences as a child who immigrated to America on his own?
The Champ meant a life style, perseverance, courage and independence! And that’s my true experience in America and I’m glad I watched it!
Classic Couple: What did The Champ teach you about family that shaped your own life and relationships?
l learn that you have to sacrifice to not give up in order to accomplish anything! Most importantly to look up not to look down! That helps me shape my life and my relationship!
Classic Couple: What other classic films featuring the triumph of the underdog are your favorites?

Crystal lee film: love story (1970) hometown: seoul, south korea current residence: los angeles, ca.
Crystal Le e was born in South Korea and has played classical piano since she was 7 years old. She came to the U.S. to start her degree in Music Therapy at Michigan State University, and landed in East Lansing, Michigan by herself. After graduating, Crystal was accepted to University of Maryland School of Law, but her studies were interrupted when family matters forced her to return to Korea. Undeterred, she came back to the States three years later, reapplied, and completed her degree. She practiced law in Los Angeles, primarily representing Korean companies. In 2011, she began acting on the side. Acting has become her primary profession and she now practices law on the side.
After seeing Love Story , the film she’s introducing on TCM, she decided she wanted to come to the U.S. for college. She even went so far as to fail out of college in Korea so she could go to school in the U.S.!
Classic Couple: What was it about Love Story (1970) that made you want to attend university in America?
I always wanted to come to America and study at a college in America. I wanted to experience college life and walk around the campus as appeared in Love Story . I was inspired by the main characters in Love Story , Oliver and Jenny. In the film, Oliver was pursuing his true love and was able to be independent from his parents even if he had to go through a harder life without parents’ supports. With his love and passion, Oliver was able to complete law school and became a lawyer. I was studying classical piano when I was in Korea. I loved Jenny’s father in the film also as he was not only a loving father but also acknowledged and supported his daughter’s decision in her life. The courage of Oliver and Jenny to follow their hearts and pursue their own ways of life was beautifully portrayed with their college life, and I really wanted to experience my life in an American college also.
Classic Couple: As an actor, what about the performances in Love Story do you most appreciate?
I loved the performances of Oliver and his father. Their acting was very natural, subtle, but vulnerable and truthful, portraying the father and son relationship so beautifully.
Classic Couple: How would you describe the cultural impact of classic American movies on Korean culture?
I believe classic American movies represent values and cultures of America to Korean people and have impacted Korean culture throughout the decades in countless ways. Such impacts include both intrinsic and extrinsic values to Korean and Korean cultures. The American beliefs and cultures are both loved by many including myself while sometimes hated by some in Korea. I loved American culture I observed through classic American movies – Americans, English language, American foods, fashions, education system, also some of values I believed that represented what America was, such as, freedom to express, different views on what happiness can be, existences of differences among people can be acknowledged or maybe accepted, creativity can be respected and allowed, living the life can be determined on your own, etc.
