Last month when Paul Newman died, I shared my Paul Newman stories with you. One of those stories included a mention that I had worked as Strother Martin's personal assistant way back when.
Last week I received an e-mail from a nice man named Greg Smith who was researching Strother and came across my blog entry about him. Greg bought the former home of Strother and Helen Martin from Helen after Strother died. Helen gave him some small mementos and he also found some things left in the garage.
The above photo is from the movie "Cool Hand Luke". Strother was famous for the line "What we have here is failure to communicate" spoken to Paul Newman.
Greg and I have exchanged a few e-mails relaying to each other our stories of Strother. It has been interesting and a pleasant trip down Memory Lane. He sent me these movie stills of Strother. I am so pleased to have them. Isn't it a small world and aren't people just so nice?
Aren't random acts of kindness the very best?
Have you been the recipient of an unexpected kindness?
