A peek into Robert Osborne's home

January 05, 2010









The New York Times has a really fantastic interview with Robert Osborne about his New York City apartment. (well, that should be plural- he apparently has three!) Make sure you click on the slide show feature, which includes a narrated tour and close-up photos of his treasured memorabilia.

Now if I could only figure out how to get some of my classic movie artwork onto those walls...

Oh, how wonderful! It's almost like a museum. But not so much that I wouldn't be comfortable living there. Hear me, Robert?

HOW COOL! I've seriously always had this feeling to creep on Robby O's living quarters...and he has a little framed picture of little Audrey Hepburn! SO CUTE. Thanks for the link and all!

Perhaps I can take over as the TCM God when I finish my cinema studies? Then I could sneak in tons of your art into his apartment, promise ;)

I'm pretty sure that if I could switch places with Robert Osborne I would be really happy. What a fantastic life and career. And he's such an interesting person.

I'm not sure which artifact I was drooling over the most, but I think that the Sarah Siddon Society award has got to be a contender!

That Marlene Dietrich photo in the upper right corner would get to me, after a while. She always looked liked she was on to you. Even if you weren't up to anything that interesting.

Thank you so much for sharing this Kate! This made my whole morning. I've always wanted to see Bobby's house!

My favorite aspect was the gargantuan bookcases with the rolling ladder. Oh my goodness how I've wished I could have a ladder like that for my bookcases. I also love how the space looks lived in. He has papers thrown all over the place, just like me! And how about that tufted leather couch? Looks like it came straight out of a 30's lawyer office!
