Turner Classic Movies will celebrate the life and career of legendary actress Lauren Bacall with a 24-hour marathon of memorable performances, including all four films in which she co-starred with husband Humphrey Bogart.

TCM’s tribute to Bacall, who passed away Tuesday at the age of 89, will air Monday, Sept. 15, beginning at 8 p.m. (Et), and will conclude Tuesday, Sept. 16, her 90th birthday.

Lauren Bacall was a wonderful and generous friend of ours at TCM, and a great connection to the ‘golden age of cinema,’” said TCM host Robert Osborne. “Personally, I have to admit that she never failed to make my heart beat faster and my voice to stammer when we spoke. Talk about true star quality – that was Bacall. We are truly blessed to have had her as an integral part of our TCM family.”

Turner Classic Movies Celebrates 20th Anniversary on Monday

12 April 2014 2:03 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

If Turner Classic Movies had only been endowed with films from the pre-1948 MGM library, it would have been the channel of cinefiles’ dreams. If it had only had the pre-1950 Warner Bros. library, it would have been a 24/7 haven for film buffs. If it had only had the Rko Pictures library, it would have been a great channel.

But thanks to the foresight of Ted Turner, TCM launched on April 14, 1994 with the keys to all three of those vaults.

Commercial free, uncut, lovingly and smartly presented movies running 24/7, along with fantastic archival material, shorts (“One-Reel Wonders”) and other carefully excavated gems — there’s nothing not to like about TCM or its primary hosts, Robert Osborne (who’s »

Robert Osborne is used to interviewing screen legends, but now he knows how it feels to sit in the other chair.

As Turner Classic Movies begins its 20th-anniversary year, its principal host -- who was an actor before he became a Hollywood columnist and historian -- recounts how his career began and progressed in a new "Private Screenings" special at 8 p.m. Et/5 Pt Monday (Jan. 6). Alec Baldwin, who hosted the Saturday-night TCM film series "The Essentials" with Osborne from 2009 to 2011, asks the questions.

"It never occurred to me," the ever-genial Osborne tells Zap2it of becoming a "Private Screenings" guest. "Way back, Dwayne Hickman [the former star of TV's 'The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis'] said, 'You know, you come into everybody's living room every night, and they don't know you. They like you, but they don't know much about you. Sometime, you should do a documentary about yourself.'

"I think that was even before we had a 'Private Screenings' franchise, »
