    Enjoyed his hosting of the Turner presentations of Warner Brothers movies. Though I can't say exactly when those intros and discussions were taped, I think they were somewhat recent, and I would have never guessed he was at or near his eighties. He was a knowledgeable movie scholar and reviewer and really knew the history and lore all around. He had an admirable career.

    He seemed very relaxed and amiable, listening to him was very easy like an old friend or favorite uncle. I will miss him very much because he reminded me of my father, a movie fanatic who worked in theaters in the forties in England and never lost his enthusiasm for film.

    So sad, I will miss his take while hosting movies on TCM

    Nowhere in the world will such a brotherly feeling of confidence be experienced as amongst those who sit together smoking their pipes

    He looked and acted like a class act. Those intro's were perfect.

    He was an excellent presenter of the movies and always gave you some trivia on the movie being shown and its stars. RIP.
