BIOGRAPHY:

Robert Osborne has been the host on Turner Classic Movies since its inception, in large part due to his deep and abiding love and knowledge of film. Osborne got his start working for Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz. The ever-perspicacious Ball suggested that Osborne combine his interest in classic film and training in journalism, and write instead of act. Osborne took this advice and produced "Academy Awards Illustrated" a book which then begat his years at The Hollywood Reporter. He also became the official historian of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. An elegant and unassuming man, Osborne combines a startling facility with movie names, dates, and facts with the gift to tell a good story and ability to be a gracious host.


TRIVIA:
  • Friend of 'Jean Hagen' (qv).
  • Graduated from the University of Washington's School of Journalism.
