Paul Newman, Jan. 26, 1925 - Sept. 26, 2008

So who didn't like Paul Newman? Looking back, it was surprising to me how often he played an anti-hero. Surly, dumb, occasionally vicious - see Newman and Piper Laurie in The Hustler. And yet all I see when I think of him are the crinkles around his eyes from smiling, something he seemed to do alot in his actual life. Then there's the thing where he married a woman who's attractive, intelligent, warm and not gorgeous. And stayed married to her. Add in the charity food thing and he just seems like a classy guy. So make sure you watch the egg-eating scene in Cool Hand Luke. Wouldn't want to pigeonhole the man.

Paul Newman - some movies and at least 1 book
