R.I.P. Paul Newman

Paul Newman passed away earlier today at age 83. In a world where movie stars seem kind of shallow and vapid, this guy was a man’s man and a humanitarian in his personal life. Talk about your class acts, Newman was right up there with the best of them.

I’ve seen over 20 of his movies, and that’s the type of line unheard of with today’s actors and actresses, who make so much money that they can literally make one movie every couple of years and live extremely well. And what movies! I tell people under 30 that they don’t know what the meaning of cool is until they’ve seen Cool Hand Luke. The Sting was a classic, and, as much as I really don’t like westerns, I’d have missed out on real style if I’d never seen Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. Outside of “Luke”, my favorite movie he ever made, oddly enough one that doesn’t get as much public attention, and yet still gave him an Academy Award nomination for best actor, was Absense of Malice with Sally Field.

Paul Newman was just a genuine guy. You saw it in his movies, then you learned more about it later on with his line of natural food products, with all his profits going to charity instead of into his own pockets. Class and style; they don’t make ‘em like him anymore.

R.I.P., Paul Newman; thanks for the great times and memories.

Cool hand Luke was a great movie, and he was a great actor. I can’t see too many around today that will be able to replace him.

Me neither. I thought Tom Cruise had the best shot, but now I’m not so sure anymore.

Sire Reply:

Tom Cruise sort of lost it for me after the performance on the Oprah Show. The guy is wacky.

Mitch Reply:

Well, he had a wacky moment, but I don’t think that was the true essence of the guy. You have to admit, though, he had a great run there as the top box office draw. That guy now would be Will Smith.

yeah, I really like Will Smith. I reckon he now aces Cruise for sure.
