My husband sent me this unbelievable story last night.
A 10-year-old from Muskogee, Oklahoma, thinks he is the reincarnation of B actor Marty Martyn. I have never heard of Martyn and he was more of a movie extra. He appeared with Mae West in the 1932 movie Night After Night.
However, Ryan is very familiar with Marty’s work and life. He gives accurate descriptions of the actor and the era of the 1930s. Ryan was born to Baptist parents in 2005. When he was four years old he started having nightmares and would talk about Hollywood. He was aware he was someone else and would tell his mom details about his former life. He spoke about five marriages, vacations to Europe, his homes, his career in Hollywood. Ryan even knew Marty smoked cigarettes.
The most interesting aspect of the story is when Ryan said Marty died at 61. Marty’s death certificate listed his age at 59. however, Ryan’s doctor discovered this was inaccurate and Ryan gave the correct age.
Here is a picture of Ryan and Marty. Do you think they are the same person?
