In Memoriam: Paul Newman

There have many touching tributes to the great Paul Newman over the last 2 days, but i had to pay my tribute to an actor which i held in high regard.


Newman was an immensely talented actor, actor in over 60 films from 1954 until last year, that’s more than half a decade. But for me, there are two roles he played that really stand out in my memory.

One is The Color of Money, which I watched in the age of grainy VHS video tape rentals back when i was a kid in the 80’s. The other, and by far my favorite, was Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. I recently just watched the movie again, thanks to P2P, just a few weeks before the passing of Newman.


Goodbye then, to a quintessential star, a fine actor, and nice guy – Mr. Newman, Cool Hand Luke, Fast Eddie, Butch Cassidy.

    My tribute to a great actor, great man and husband. A hero in the same generation as Redford and Steve McQueen we will sadly miss his presence in the movie.

    Watch the Towering Inferno starring him and McQueen!

    Paul Newman, may you rest in peace.
