10-Year-Old Boy Remembers Past Life as 1930’s Hollywood Actor
""Mom, I have something I need to tell you.
I used to be somebody else.”
Those were the words that five-year-old Ryan Hammons told his mother as he was being tucked into bed five years ago, according to NBC News’s Today.
Ryan reportedly began having vivid nightmares at age four.
The next year, Ryan told his mother he wanted to “go home” to Hollywood, and related stories about meeting actress Rita Hayworth, taking trips to Paris, and dancing on Broadway.
The boy said he had once lived on a street with the word “rock” in it.
“His stories were so detailed and they were so extensive, that it just wasn’t like a child could have made it up,” the boy’s mother, Cyndi Hammons, told Today.
“Then we found the picture, and it changed everything.”
Hammons had gone to the library to investigate her son’s claims when she happened upon a book that contained a still photo of two men from the 1932 film Night After Night, starring Mae West.
“She turns to the page in the book, and I say ‘that’s me, that’s who I was,'” now ten-year-old Ryan told Today.
Cyndi Hammons could not find out any more information about the man, so for help, she reportedly approached Dr. Jim Tucker, an associate professor of psychiatry and neurobehavioral sciences at the University of Virginia, who has spent more than ten years studying the phenomenon of reincarnation memories in children.
Tucker helped Hammons identify the man in the photo as
Marty Martyn, a small-time actor who later became a big-time Hollywood agent.
Astonishingly, after examining Ryan, Tucker was reportedly able to confirm 55 details
about Martyn’s life that the boy had provided. Martyn had danced on Broadway, traveled to Paris, and even lived on a street with the word “rock” in it:
825 North Roxbury Dr. in Beverly Hills.
Ryan was also able to provide details about Martyn’s family that even the man’s own kin had not known.
Martyn’s daughter had grown up believing her father had one sister, but Ryan told Tucker that he had had two.
Tucker was able to confirm that finding.
Ryan also correctly provided details about the number of times Martyn was married, how many children he had, and details about Martyn’s profession.
“If you look at a picture of a guy with no lines in a movie, and then tell me about his life, I don’t think many of us would have come up with Marty Martyn life,” Tucker told Today.
“Yet Ryan provided many details that really did fit with his life.”
In the most bizarre instance of a potential connection, Tucker thought Ryan may have provided an incorrect detail about Martyn’s life when he said he “didn’t see why God would let you get to be 61 and then make you come back as a baby.”
Tucker found that Martyn had died in 1964 at the age of 59, not 61.
However, after examining old census records, Tucker discovered that Martyn had been born in 1903, not 1905 as his birth certificate claimed, making Ryan’s statement eerily correct."
Night After Night is a 1932 American drama film starring
and Mae West in her first movie role.Oddly enough, I also noticed that Mae West passed away on November 22nd (1980), Constance Cummings passed on November 23rd (2005) and Raft on November 24th (1980).
Now when I saw the news story about the boy who thinks he is a reincarnation of Marty Martyn I had been writing my posts on the synchromystic links in the movie
Back to the Future and of course the star of the BTTF films is
Michael J Fox, who plays Marty McFly.

Mae West starred in Night After Night with Marty Martyn and passed away on November 22nd, the anniversary of Kennedy's assassination.
"[Mae West on Marilyn Monroe] The only gal who came near to me in the sex appeal department was pretty little Marilyn Monroe.
All the others had were big boobs."
JFK was born in MAY (Mae?).
I couldn't help thinking about the actors involved in the movie
Night After Night
and their synchromystic links in a Six Degrees of Separation kind of way to the Back to the Future movie trilogy.
Interestingly GEORGE Raft died only two days after Mae West.
"Raft died from leukemia at the age of 79 in Los Angeles, California, on November 24, 1980.
Two days earlier, Mae West had died and their bodies were at one point alongside each other in the hallway of the same mortuary at the same time.
George Raft played "Spats" Colombo, a mobster from Chicago?!
has anybody here read
Double Cross: The Explosive, Inside Story of the Mobster Who Controlled America?
It gets weirder with this Night After Night film because on the Wiki page for the movie is written,
"Although Night After Night is not a comedy, it has many comedic moments, especially with the comic relief of West, who plays a supporting role in her screen debut.
West portrays a fictionalized version of Texas Guinan and the film remains primarily remembered as the launching pad for her career.
Raft campaigned to cast his friend and former employer Guinan herself but the studio opted for West since she was nine years younger.
Raft believed that the part would have launched a major film career for Guinan, which proved to be the case for West instead.
(West was reportedly a fan of Guinan and incorporated some of the flamboyant Guinan's ideas into her own acts)."
Mary Louise Cecilia "Texas" Guinan passed away on
NOVEMBER 5TH!? (January 12, 1884 – November 5, 1933)
Texas Guinan / Texas Gunman?
Hmm...Maybe not Mae?-)
