The Passing of a Legend

Legendary actor, philanthropist, and racing enthusiast Paul Newman has died.

Everybody thinks of Cool Hand Luke when then think of Newman. But my favorite performance and film with Paul Newman is The Verdict directed by Sidney Lumet and written by David Mamet.

Here's a humorous story from his wife of 50 years Joanne Woodward.

Paul Newman - Born: January 26, 1925, Died: September 26, 2008.

One of two actors over whose deaths I've actually shed tears, and one of the reasons Roger and I named our son Luke. What an amazing life, and a long life, and still, over all too soon.
