Paul Newman

Paul Newman was an actor second and a person first. I have always admired him and his wife Joanne Woodward. While once being one of Hollywood's A list couples they always seemed down to Earth. Not pretentious. They supported causes and gave tremendously.
Newman was from a different era of Hollywood. The way he carried himself, presented himself and felt about others less fortunate than himself was evidenced by his many philanthropic endeavors.

The first movie I ever saw him in was Cool Hand Luke which became a favorite. I loved his determination in it. Is there anyone who didn't like him??

Of course this man looked good at any age and those beautiful blue eyes...
And while he will remembered for those handsome physical features, he will also be remembered for the person he was, a gentleman and a class act.
