Today TCM celebrates its crystal anniversary: 15 years as television’s foremost platform for all things classic film. For all of us classic movie fans out there, there really aren’t enough words to express our gratitude that TCM exists—I’m sure I’m not alone in saying that it has cheered many a gloomy morning, eased many a stressful day, and brightened many a lonely night. For 15 years its been a loyal, dear friend to all of us, giving its all every day, through good times and bad. Always ready for us with open arms, a cozy armchair conversation and an unfailing arsenal of the movies that make us believe in life, love, and even ourselves.
So here’s to Robert Osborne, Ben Mankiewicz and all the unsung heroes over at Turner Classic Movies. You are definitely the best station out there, and the best website of the week any week out of the year!
