Tom Hanks shares love in ex­clu­sive ‘Cal­i­for­nia Typewriter’ trailer

The Hamilton Spectator - - A&E -

In a world of iPads, emo­jis and vir­tual re­al­ity, there is still a siz­able con­tin­gent of peo­ple in love with the clat­ter­ing of old type­writ­ers. Those crazy for an­tique mov­able-type ma­chines, in­clud­ing Tom Hanks and John Mayer, share their vin­tage love in the up­com­ing doc­u­men­tary Cal­i­for­nia Typewriter (in New York and L.A. the­atres Aug. 11), the trailer for which de­buts ex­clu­sively at us­ato­day.com. Named for a fa­mous Berke­ley, Calif, typewriter shop, Cal­i­for­nia Typewriter fol­lows var­i­ous stories of afi­ciona­dos, some of whom cre­ate works of art from th­ese in­creas­ingly ob­scure tools while oth­ers seek out the holy grail of their col­lec­tion. Hanks cops to own­ing more than 250, “and I would say 90 per cent of them are in per­fect work­ing or­der.”
