Lisa Hamm from Cedar Rapids, IA


Aside from watch TCM, what do you do?

I love spending time with my dogs and family. We live in the Midwest so I love when we get big snowstorms in the winter! I am an IT Project Manager by day and manage IT security and infrastructure projects.


What’s your favorite movie snack?

Gummy bears are the best movie snack, hands down!


What’s your favorite part of TCM?

The LOVE for classic movies. Everyone involved with TCM truly loves these movies and the people involved in creating them. Not only that, but everyone at TCM cares about us - the people that are passionate about these movies. What an amazing community TCM has built! It’s been built on a genuine love and passion for classic films.


What’s your favorite movie genre?

That is hard!! I equally love musicals, Hitchcock and westerns.


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

Do I have to pick just one? :-)

Alfred Hitchcock - he is a complete genius with the way he presents his stories in such an intelligent way.

I also love Bing Crosby. I was first exposed to him as a child in White Christmas and since then have always adored him. The sound of his voice is so comforting to me! I love Holiday Inn and High Society. He is just brilliant.

And I love John Wayne! Sorry, that was three - I couldn’t pick just one!


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

Angela Lansbury. I would love to hear her behind the scenes stories from Gaslight to The Harvey Girls to Murder, She Wrote!

Knowing me I would be so speechless to meet her I wouldn’t know what to say!


What do you collect?

Coffee mugs. I love expressing my interests and personality with my coffee mugs. I am a very passionate coffee drinker so it’s fun to always have a fun and unique mug to use.


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

White Christmas!
