    Sad. I must watch "The Hustler" soon, the only PN film I own, and I've never even seen it all the way through. Not many old-school legends left now. Liz Taylor is the only one that comes to mind.

    Well there is Redford, although he's a bit younger.

    Don't forget that his charities touched millions. A great man with deeds beyond just excellent acting. He will be an icon.

    Has there been a good bio written? I know bits and pieces of his life, but I think a good biography of him would be a fantastic read.

    If not, I'm sure one will be out soon.

    Indeed, some may not be aware that his food brands resulted in 100% of the profits going to charities...something on the order of $250 million so far. Clearly a class act.

    Surprising quote from you but absolutely true.

    Newman was as a much a Connecticut guy as a Hollywood guy.

    He was an actor, family man, auto racer, philanthropist, and you are right a mensche to boot,

    A great guy that lived a great life.

    Great actor. Always liked his roles, even if the movie wasn't so hot. He seemed to appeal to both men and women. I liked what the article said about him saying one of his proudest achievements was to be included on Nixon's enemies list. He's one of those people that one wishes would live forever.

    Why do people insist on politicizing every-effing-thing? It's unneeded.

    I made my wife watch "Slapshot" about a week ago. She sure as hell didn't get it, but I'm glad I got to watch one of my favorites while still knowing that he was alive.

    It's an important part of what he was about. Why can't someone admire or deplore it?

    It invites partisanship in what, IMO, should be a simple acknowledgment of his passing. The post I questioned was not a simple statement of what Paul Newman was about, but rather a political statement of the poster's feelings. The statement was more about the poster than it was Newman. It is just my 2 cents, but if you want an obit to turn into a political discussion, by judgmental statements being in here, that's fine with me. I will refrain from stating my political views within the frame work of an homage to a good man. Feel free to state your judgment of the worth of the man based on your political views.
