Tom Hanks, typewriter enthusiast

| Typewriters are Oscar-winning actor Tom Hanks' not-so-guilty pleasure. He has a personal collection of more than a hundred, in nearly every style, make and year. They intrigue him so much, Hanks even made typewriters the supporting characters in his very first book, a collection of short stories fittingly titled "Uncommon Type." He talked with Lee Cowan about his affection for typewriters, and how he found his writer's voice.
