Paul Newman: 1925-2008

27 09 2008

Another one of the Hollywood Greats, Paul Newman died on Friday. He was 83.

A fine actor with a tremendous career, a philanthropist with a long history of humanitarian work, a very good race car driver, and, overall, a gentlemen filled of great class and distinction.

It pains me to see him go.

Required Viewing:

Hud, Cool Hand Luke, The Hustler, Color of Money, The Verdict, Slap Shot, Nobody’s Fool, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, and Road To Perdition

Update:

Thanks to the power of YouTube, Alan Sepinwall, and The Remote Island you can see how Newman was a damn good TV star as well: Remembering Paul Newman by Ben Kallen

Turner Classic Movies sets a 24-hour Newman tribute for Oct. 12.

Paul Newman is a legend for his work in movies, and he’s a stud for all his work outside of movies
