Robert Osbourne, the man with the gentle smile and an infinite love of film; the face and voice of Turner Movies Classics for more than 23 years, has died at the age of 84.

Best known as the network’s premier host with a seemingly inexhaustible font of knowledge about the films he presented, Osborne was also a keen interviewer who was able to make his interviews with industry legends like Debbie Reynolds and Sophia Loren seem like cozy chats with friends – while never glossing over less memorable moments or pandering.
