Line(s) of the Day #Magnolia

Greenberry Hill

In the New York Herald, November 26, year 1911, there is an account of the hanging of three men. They died for the murder of Sir Edmund William Godfrey; Husband, Father, Pharmacist and all around gentle-man resident of: Greenberry Hill, London. He was murdered by three vagrants whose motive was simple robbery. They were identified as: Joseph Green, Stanley Berry, and Daniel Hill. Green, Berry, Hill. And I Would Like To Think This was Only A Matter Of Chance.

The opening lines as narrated in Magnolia (1999), a mosaic mixture of storylines that arguably includes Tom Cruise’s best ever performance.
