    Film historian Robert Osborne, the effervescent primetime host of Turner Classic Movies since the cabler's inception in 1994, has died. He was 84. TCM released a statement saying, "All of us at Turner Classic Movies are deeply saddened by the death of Robert Osborne. Robert was a beloved member of the Turner family for more than 23 years." Osborne was an irrepressible advocate for the films of Hollywood's golden era who wrote the Motion Picture Academy-sanctioned "50 Years of the Oscar: The Official History of the Academy Awards" in 1978 and a number of updates ending in 2008 with "80...

    FReeper fave Blazing Saddles is airing tonight on Turner Classic Movies at 10:30 p.m. EST. This FR thread from 2015 posited that Blazing Saddles could not be made today due to political correctness.Fortunately in 1974 Mel Brooks, Richard Pryor, Gene Wilder, Cleavon Little, Madeline Kahn, Harvey Korman, Slim Pickens, Alex Karras, et al, were still free to make this comedy classic.The showing of Blazing Saddles is part of TCM's 31 Days of Oscar A to Z which started Wednesday.TCM airs films unedited, so all the jokes should be heard/seen.

    Forerunner of PEYTON PLACE still retains its sweep of life in pre-WW1 Midwestern town, with the fates of many townsfolk intertwined. Beautiful Erich Wolfgang Korngold music score backs up plush production, fine characterizations. Notable, too, as Reagan's finest performance. Screenplay by Casey Robinson, from Henry Bellamann's best-selling book.

    It has become almost a self-parodying habit of mainstream media outlets: if the calendar says the season is holy, then the headlines and activities are meant to mock and to shock. Every Advent brings theories meant to “explain” a virgin birth and brightly shining stars, and every Lent brings reruns of The DaVinci Code to cable outlets, and it’s all meant to seem daring and smart and provocative.These efforts, by the way, sometimes incite outrage, mostly because some people are so predictably willing to be outraged when they could actually choose — like Christ himself — to be patiently...

    When I walked into Spaulding Auditorium to see The Best Years of Our Lives as an undergrad, I had never even heard of the film. When I walked out three hours later, I couldn’t believe I had never heard of it. It is a great film with a lot of truth and a big heart in it. Tonight TCM is carrying the film as part of its Memorial Day lineup. It’s a movie every American should see. If you haven’t seen it yet, you might want to try to catch it tonight. Mark Harris tells the highly improbable story behind...

    I normally watch Turner Classic Movies on a regular basis, but the last month or so has been brutal and I've been able to watch very little. Sadly, I just found out that John Wayne is their Star of the Month for April. Instead of showing his films on several nights a week, TCM is currently doing a marathon of his films. I'm trying to figure out what shows to dump from my DVR in order to record some ones that I haven't seen in quite some time. Today is the official last day of the marathon and there are...
