Martha Hyer

Happy Birthday to

Martha Hyer

87 today

Former classmate of Charlton Heston and Patricia Neal at Northwestern University (what a group eh?) Martha was able to mix casual detachment with deep yearning, best exhibited in her Academy Award nominated role in Some Came Running holding her own against Frank Sinatra and Shirley Maclaine.

Sure wish I knew where she was today :( Martha and my mother were best friends for years during their school years and went back and forth to each other's homes during the holidays (this was prior to Northwestern).
Martha, if you ever see this, although I doubt you will, my Mom, Gloria Herig, never, ever forgot you. Mom passed away 2 days after her birthday (Aug 4) on Aug 6, 2009.

Thank you very much for your comment Jenny, whilst I doubt Martha does read this blog I suspect she does remember your mother. It never ceases to amaze me the friends you remember from way way back.
