Sometimes a Great Movie Signed Edition by Matt Love
Sometimes a Great Movie Signed Edition

Jennifer Fleck, August 10, 2012

Never have I read a work that captures the true community feeling that inhabits the small costal town of Newport, Oregon better than in Matt Love's Sometimes a Great Movie: Paul Newman, Ken Kesey and the Filming of the Great Oregon Novel.

The book itself is a testament to the greatness of the Oregon Coast. Between the locally written stories about personal experiences and the author's personal stories of discovering what really happened with Paul Newman, the saw and the pool table, Love's passion and dedication to uncovering and relaying the unique story of Hollywood celebrities forming bonds with Lincoln County locals is evident in every sentence.

It's impossible to not become passionate about both Sometimes a Great Notion and the greatness and beauty of the Oregon Coast and it's inhabitants while reading this book.
