Aside from watch TCM, what do you do?

I write -- I've written three novels and many short stories and just finished a cookbook! Love doing this, never published anything but it still makes me happy! I also babysit my 97 year old mother who says I am now the mother and she's the daughter. And, honestly, she's great. She remembers more than I do!

 

What’s your favorite movie snack?

Water! I know that's not a snack but it's what I do while I'm watching my TCM movies!

 

What’s your favorite part of TCM?

Well, the movies of course but I love the detail sharings from Ben Mankiewicz and everyone who has discussions on the shows.

 

What’s your favorite movie genre?

Probably would be suspense and romance movies -- can't really pick one from the other but when there's both in one film it's fantastic.

 

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

Bette Davis -- she made every role she played enchanting, adoring, scary, alluring and more. Every role she played was made so believable, it grabbed me from the start.

 

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

There was one person I wanted to meet and believe it or not I did meet him once -- Frank Sinatra! I was in Las Vegas and he was doing a show, and after the show I was walking to the casino in Caesars Palace and he was behind me. I turned around, pushed his security guard out of the way and threw my arms around him. He was so nice to me -- kissed me and talked to me and didn't have me arrested even though he could have! A dream come true!

 

What do you collect?

I collected movies (from the old days as well as today) and record albums. Now I'm collecting pictures of the family -- they are all over my walls!

 

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

I love Love Affair with Charles Boyer and Irene Dunne! It has everything I love in a romantic movie and they are so wonderful together. I know it was remade a few times but this one has the pull for me.
