Tina Munroe from St. Louis, MO

 

Aside from watch TCM, what do you do?

I like festivals, sporting events, going to church and hanging out with my family.

 

What’s your favorite movie snack?

Peanut M & Ms.

 

What’s your favorite part of TCM?

My favorite part is just the opportunity to be exposed to so many movies that I would not know about or have the chance to see. I also like feeling a part of a group -- of people with the same interest and passion for classic movies!

 

What’s your favorite movie genre?

I like dramas, particularly from the late 1930s-1940's.

 

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

I love Greer Garson. She is so classy and strong. I just love watching all of her movies -- I wish she had made more.

 

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

I would love to meet Margaret O'Brien. I saw her on the TCM cruise, but I didn't get a chance to meet her. I would just like to tell her how much I admired her as a young actress and how much joy she must have brought to so many people at the time and how her movies continue to spread joy.

 

What do you collect?

I don't know if it is an official collection, but I have way too many pairs of Sperrys. I love them!

 

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

The Valley of Decision. It stars two of my favorite actors, Greer Garson and Gregory Peck. It is such a classic love story.

I think it's wonderful that you went on a TCM cruise. It is a dream of mine to go to a TCM Classic Movie Festival or a TCM Cruise. I have never seen Valley of Decision so I will keep my eyes open for that movie. And your choice of Greer Garson was spot on. She exuded class. Glad we have you in the Backlot group.

Hi Ron.  Nice to meet someone from St. Louis.  I went to see Gone with the Wind at Ronnie's Cinema last night.  Do you ever go there? It was great!
