Tama Hochbaum's mother came of age in the 1930s during the Golden Age of the Silver Screen. As a young woman, one of her favorite pastimes was going to the movies. During the last years of her life as she suffered from increasingly poor health with the onset of Alzheimer's, she found great comfort in watching re-broadcasts of the movies of her youth. Hochbaum cared for her mother with daily phone calls and visits as often as she could. Mother and daughter stayed connected by watching movies simultaneously on The Turner Classic Movies station that was on Channel 67 in both their neighborhoods Hochbaum's in North Carolina, her mother's in New York.
