Robert Osborne's 20th Anniversary Tribute

During the 2014 TCM Classic Film Festival last April, a Q&A session with Robert Osborne and fans at Hollywood's Montalban Theatre was interrupted when Jeopardy host Alex Trebek unexpectedly appeared onstage to host a surprise tribute to Osborne on the occasion of his 20th anniversary with TCM.

A taped version of the tribute shows Trebek, in "This Is Your Life" style, introducing various family members and friends who appear to honor and congratulate the much-loved TCM host. Joining cousins and nieces are longtime Osborne associates including fellow hosts Ben Mankiewicz and Alec Baldwin, and such celebrity guests as Eva Marie Saint, Diane Baker, Robert Wagner and his wife, Jill St. John. Tony Barbon, the first director of Osborne's TCM appearances, offers reminiscences, and Michael Feinstein performs a favorite Osborne tune, "The More I See You," from the 1945 film Diamond Horseshoe.

The evening on TCM is rounded out by Robert Osborne's Picks, a monthly collection of movies personally curated by our host. This group of films features appearances by tribute guests including Saint opposite Cary Grant in the Alfred Hitchcock thriller North by Northwest (1959), Baker opposite Gregory Peck in the film noir adventure Mirage (1965), Wagner in the murder mystery A Kiss Before Dying (1956) and St. John in the Tennessee Williams drama The Roman Spring of Mrs. Stone (1961), starring Vivien Leigh and Warren Beatty.
