Paul Newman

Paul Newman, dead at 83. He was one of my favorite actors and he eschewed the Hollywood scene as being 'rubbish'. Married twice, he was married to Joanne Woodward for fifty years before his death - how un-Hollywood is that?

I ADORED Paul Newman. While growing up the family traveled to VA and stopped at Indy 500 raceway where they were filming Winning. My Dad got picked to be one of the guys rolling Newman into the alleyway after his win. Unfortunately, he wound up on the cutting room floor, but WHAT a thrill for a kid to see a real movie star!! He was a brilliant actor and wonderful humanitarian and totally humble. They don't get any better than that.
