Interview: Robert Osborne Returns to Hollywood with the TCM Classic Film Festival

For the fourth year in a row, Osborne will be on hand to introduce classic films on the big screen and interview stars from Hollywood’s Golden Era

By DannyMiller Thu 2:27 PM

Robert Osborne has been the face of Turner Classic Movies for almost 20 years now. There are few people around who know more about movies and few people who are capable of getting the stars of yesteryear to open up about their lives and careers as he regularly does. Osborne is back in Hollywood for the 4th Annual TCM Classic Film Festival. The four-day event, which attracts cinephiles from all over the world, opens tonight with a star-studded premiere of a newly restored version of William Wyler’s “Funny Girl” starring Barbra Streisand and Omar Sharif. More than 80 films will be screened between April 25th and 28th at several historic movie theaters in Hollywood and Osborne will be on hand to introduce many of them and to interview celebrity guests including Tippi Hedren, Ann Blyth, Eva Marie Saint, Mickey Rooney, Jane Withers, and many others. As the red carpet was being set up in front of Grauman’s Chinese Theater for tonight’s opening, I sat down with Robert Osborne across the street at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, site of the very first Academy Awards presentation in 1929.
