Tom Hanks loves typewriters. He loves them so much he's posted dozens of them to Twitter and Facebook through his WhoSay account. He's also got videos of himself plinking dramatically on a 1940s Smith Corona at the CNN headquarters, in front of Wrigley Field in Chicago, in a hotel outside the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin, in front of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, and on the Westminster Bridge in London.
Hanks displays most of his collection - 150-plus 20th-century typewriters - at his Playtone office, but according to Country Living magazine, he also keeps one by the phone at home and uses typewriters to write notes to friends. Collectors Weekly asked some of their favorite typewriter collectors to help figure out what machine they could best bribe Tom Hanks with.
