    Bob Dorian, TV host who introduced cable viewers to movies back when AMC was known as American Movie Classics died June 15 in Florida. I remember watching him along with Nick Clooney in the 1990's introducing movies like TCM would do later.

    Thanks for posting. Bob and Nick both did great jobs and I miss the commentary. Before doing AMC he was a pretty good magician as well.

    Sad news indeed as I have great memories of him along with Nick Clooney hosting AMC, when it was a channel I watched daily.
