The Osborne Collection
The American Film Institute (AFI) announced the launch of The Osborne Collection, a celebration on AFI.com of the life and work of one of America’s foremost film historians, Robert Osborne (1932-2017). The Collection will debut on May 3, Osborne’s birthday. A true time capsule of American film history, the online collection will feature a variety of Osborne’s famous film introductions, including ones for THE BEST YEARS OF OUR LIVES, BRINGING UP BABY, BUTCH CASSIDY AND THE SUNDANCE KID, FROM HERE TO ETERNITY, THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME, NATIONAL VELVET, ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO’S NEST, NORTH BY NORTHWEST, PSYCHO, A STAR IS BORN (1954), THE THIN MAN and TOP HAT. To further enrich the viewing experience, the Collection will be connected to the AFI Catalog of Feature Films, the most comprehensive chronicle of the first century of American cinema which was used as a reference for Osborne’s introductions. In honor of the launch and in celebration of Osborne’s birthday, a conversation between TCM’s Ben Mankiewicz and The Hollywood Reporter’s Scott Feinberg explore his work and legacy.
