Paul Newman, 1925-2008

Paul Newman died yesterday after after a long battle with cancer. He was 83.

I haven't seen near all of the 60 or so films Newman acted in, but a few of my favorites include him--like Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (above), Towering Inferno, The Sting, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Slapshot, and Cool Hand Luke. If I recall correctly, Newman is one of my mom's favorite actors. Indeed, he was good at what he did, bringing good stories and complex characters to life.

it's hard not to admire Paul Newman for putting his money to work in such productive ways, such as his Newman's Own line--high quality stuff and the proceeds go to good causes... very smart.
