Charles Johnson from Norfolk, VA


Aside from watch TCM, what do you do?

I used to run, now I jog, one day I'll walk, and then I'll rest.

News junkie (love presidential election years regardless of the outcome).

I love reading multiple movie reviews after I have watched a movie.


What’s your favorite movie snack?

Popcorn with "real" butta and a sizzling coke (not Pepsi).


What’s your favorite part of TCM?

Any movie that I choose to watch that is hosted. I love the back stories, insights, and things to look for.

Also love the post movie summaries. Sometimes they're so good, it makes me want to see the movie again.


What’s your favorite movie genre?

Film noir. But as I get older, I have a new found respect for dance musicals (Fred and Gene, in particular).


Who’s your favorite actor or actress or filmmaker of all time? And why?

Alfred Hitchcock. His perverse sense of humor has always fascinated me. As I learned more about him over the years, the more fascinated I became with his movies.


Who would you be thrilled to meet, and what would you say?

Humphrey Bogart is my favorite lead actor.  I would say to him "Mr. Bogart, please stop smoking!"

It is so sad to know that many stars lives were cut short by smoking.


What do you collect?

I used to collect movies. Sadly, I sold my collection for financial reasons.

I have quietly started amassing movies set and filmed in my hometown, Brooklyn, USA. I love seeing the places I know in the movies.


If you had to pick just one, what would be your favorite movie?

Vertigo, Casablanca, Funny Face, Dazed and Confused, and the first time I saw Star Wars!
