A Sad Guilty Pleasures Monday – Paul Newman

Paul Newman passed away on Saturday. He was 83. According to an AP News story, Newman “was nominated for Oscars 10 times, winning one regular award and two honorary ones, and had major roles in more than 50 motion pictures, including “Exodus,” “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,” “The Verdict,” “The Sting” and “Absence of Malice.””

One of my favorites of his was BUTCH CASSIDY AND THE SUNDANCE KID. Then there was COOL HAND LUKE, THE VERDICT, THE STING, CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF. So many great movies and through it all, Mr. Newman nevers seems to have lost his head to the cult of celebrity. Everyone who knew him, respected him. His philanthropy has helped so many.

It is the end of an era and Mr. Newman will be sorely missed. Here’s one of the many tributes available on Youtube to Paul Newman on a sad Guilty Pleasures Monday.

  1. I had a poster of him tacked to the ceiling over my bed when I was in college.
    I think it was from when he appeared in HUD.
    He had that look in his eyes…pure devil, pure sex….
    And, while he was far from a devil, I understand his wife never complained about the other part, which was very, very real.
    Such a sad loss for everyone.

  2. Although Paul Newman was handsome and sexy when he was younger, he was even more so as he got older. He and Robert Mitchum have always been my favorite stars. They had that something extra that made them stand above other actors. Couldn’t you just drown in those blue eyes of his? He was also of of the rare ones who stayed with his wife all these years. I have never heard of him straying as so many do. That is unheard of today. Marriages come with swinging doors anymore. His charities have helped so may especially children. That also makes him stand out as today’s crop of actors seem more intrested in self than helping others. He will be misses. Have a great day and hugs to all.
