Aside from watch TCM, what do you do?

I am a special education aide by day and Marilyn Monroe Impersonator by night.


What’s your favorite movie snack?

Movie Popcorn and a Coke!


What’s your favorite part of TCM?

Aside from the movies themselves (I am constantly amazed to discover a film that I have not seen and simply cannot believe I had never watched it before), I enjoy the older movie trailers! They are so much fun to see.


What’s your favorite movie genre?

Suspense, but also romance... throw in some noir as well... and a musical or two.


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

Vivien Leigh would have to be my all time favorite, although Bette Davis is right there with her. I absolutely admire Vivien's versatility and vulnerability on screen. She could be tough and determined as Scarlett in Gone With the Wind, yet the depth of character that she brought to Blanche DuBois in A Streetcar Named Desire is truly a beautiful thing to behold.


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

Liza Minnelli would be my dream meeting. I would just love to hear her say anything... and I would ask her if she has any plans or would like to be in another film... or if she has a dream character she would like to play.


What do you collect?

I collect old Hollywood memorabilia and Disney everything, particularly vintage Disneyland items.


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

The Wizard of Oz. It is a timeless classic with fine acting, powerhouse movie stars and a good moral to the story... and the flying monkeys are the best!
