The clip Paul's story from The Green Mile (1999) with Dabbs Greer. Powered by: Anyclip. any moment from any film.
I guess sometimes the past just catches up with you whether you want it to or not. It's silly.
Was it the film? It was, wasn't it?
I haven't spoken of these things for a long time, Ellie.
Over 60 years.
Paul, I'm your friend.
I ever tell you that I was a prison guard during the Depression?
You've mentioned it.
Did I mention that I was in charge of death row?
That I supervised all the executions?
Usually, death row is called "The Last Mile."
We called ours "The Green Mile."
The floor was the color of faded limes.
We had the electric chair.
"Old Sparky," we called it.
Oh, I've lived a lot of years, Ellie but 1935, that takes the prize.
That year, I had the worst urinary infection of my life.
It was also the year of John Coffey and the two dead girls.
