Over the years Lucy made many efforts to help Raft, in appreciation for his generosity.
This story was told by Lucille Ball herself.
Raft was known as the 'the softest touch' in Hollywood. Helping both the famous and unknown. However, he never wanted anyone to help him. He loved to be self-reliant.
But when he got into a back tax problem that was publiscized, he received a blank check in the mail from Frank Sinatra with a note saying: "Just fill in any amount you need, George."
Later Sinatra hired Raft to appear in 'Ocean's 11'.
