There are many of us who remember the amazing blue eyes of Paul Newman.
I thought I would let you know that he has died of cancer. He had also started a foundation named "Newman's Own" that donated all profits after taxes for education & charity.
My memories of him are more recent as a race car driver and owner.

He will always be Butch Cassidy to me. What a tragic loss. But what an amazing legacy!!! And what an example he and Joan set for the rest of us! He will be missed . . .

RIP Mr. Newman . . .

I always just called him by his first name - Luke.

A Cool Hand indeed.

My favorite role of his was as Brick in "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof".

He was truely a remarkable man & actor. He will be missed.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

There are way to many outstanding roles to list all of them but my favorites are Cool Hand Luke, The Color of Money, The Sting, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and Absence of Malice.

What a great actor and human.

He will be missed, but his films and legend will live on.
