This was just posted on TCM's FB page:
"Heads up TCM fans! Robert Osborne will be taking some time off next month, and Ben Mankiewicz will be hosting in his place. You'll see Ben on-air starting August 30. Here's to Robert enjoying some well-deserved time off!"
I wondered what happened to him. I'm getting to like Ben M more as he appears more frequently. The day will come that Robert O will not be around anymore. That's life.
It amazes me when I work outside that after 15-20 minutes I need to take a sit down rest! I've always thought of myself as SuperWoman! I still feel in my head that I am young -- my body disagrees and is very out-spoken about it.
He will be on vacation this coming January, Osborne and TMC are offering a sea cruise for two weeks I think is what the spot said, where you can hob nob with Osborne..and maybe get to watch an old movie or two?...
Same here I think I am still 35....body knows better and lets me know about it everyday, but I keep on keeping on til I drop
I believe Bob Dorian was host of AMC in the early days before Nick Clooney [and before AMC had commercial breaks during movies]. I hardly remember him so had to look it up. Sort of recognize his picture but that's about all. I was in love with Nick Clooney waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay before his son was introduced as the No. 1 Hottie of the World!
The majority of films presented on AMC during the 1990s had originally been released by Paramount Pictures, 20th Century Fox, Columbia Pictures and Universal Studios. There were occasional showings of silent film classics. The regular hosts of the telecasts were Bob Dorian and, later, Nick Clooney, as well as New York radio personality Gene Klavan from WNEW (1130 AM, now WBBR). Another WNEW-AM alum, Al "Jazzbeaux" Collins, provided his voice for the interstitials "Jazzbo's Swingin' Soundies."
