The one and only Tom Hanks by Izzy McNessie
Transcript of The one and only Tom Hanks by Izzy McNessie
Tom Hanks was born in Concord, California on July 9, 1957. He was Amos and Janet Hank's third child. But life took Tom for a little ride. Janet and Amos got divorced when Tom was only 5 years old. Tom and his older brother and sister and Dad drove away that night and headed to Reno, Nevada.
Amos Hanks then married a woman who had 5 children. It was huge change for Tom, but sadly the marriage only lasted 2 years.The family moved back to Oakland, California where in 1966 Amos married Frances Wong who had 3 daughters
Tom attended Bret Harte Junior High School. He was known as the class clown. He knew that if his teacher was not laughing then he would really need to shut up

Amos was a cook and was always going different places to work. Sadly, Tom never really had any friends since he was always moving
The Space Race
Tom enrolled at Skylight High School and was like any other student. Enrolled in a couple of sports but didn't stay very long in sports because he saw his friends in Dracula. That`s when Tom got interested in theater. After that he started acting, he was so good in South Pacific that he won an "Oscar" for best actor.
Tom enrolled at Chabot Community College in Hayward California, and worked as a Bell Man at a nearby Hilton Hotel, but his class convinced his to transfer to California State University to get a better theater arts experience.
It was a long journey for Tom with all these other theaters and plays [which is a totally different story] but Tom finally got on his first TV series, Bosom Buddies which premiered on Thanksgiving 1980. It was about these 2 advertising executives who needed a place to live after their rat infested apartment building is demolished so some how they find a place to live in a women only hotel where they have to dress up as girls everywhere they go.
During the 60's Tom got caught up in the space race. At one point he got so interested that he could recite lots of the rocket launches and the passengers on board. He also loved the show Star Trek and saw the movie The Space Odyssey 22 times!
