  We are such spendthrifts with our lives," Newman said.  "The trick of

living is to slip on and off the planet with the least fuss you can muster.

I'm not running for sainthood.  I just happen to think that in life we need

to be a little like the farmer, who puts back into the soil what he takes

out."

 


 


What a great philosophy from a great man ...



 


 


 

He was very talented - and insightful, too.


Thanks.

In Response to Paul Newman:

Hello all, 


I just read that Paul Newman died.  He was one of my very favorite actors - and probably a favorite of many of you, too. The New York Times said he was one of the "last great actors of the 20th Century." He was also a philanthropist. And, they wrote:


If Marlon Brando and James Dean defined the defiant American male as a sullen rebel, Paul Newman recreated him as a likable renegade, a strikingly handsome figure of animal high spirits and blue-eyed candor whose magnetism was almost impossible to resist, whether the character was Hud, Cool Hand Luke or Butch Cassidy.


He acted in more than 65 movies over more than 50 years, drawing on a physical grace, unassuming intelligence and good humor that made it all seem effortless. Yet he was also an ambitious, intellectual actor and a passionate student of his craft, and he achieved what most of his peers find impossible: remaining a major star into craggy, charismatic old age.


I know he will be missed.

  What a wonderful philanthropist as well as a great actor and a very handsome man - and his eyes were just as blue in his later years.  Here is my favourite photo:

Hi Shelby and everyone,


I'm glad you are Paul Newman fans, too.


I think my favorite movies were Hud, The Long Hot Summer, The Sting, From the Terrace and Nobody's Fool.


I'd probably watch any movie he was in. I'm sad he's gone, but we can watch his films.

  HI JoAnn,


 


    Paul Newman will always be alive to me, just like Frank Sinatra.  When I heard Frank Sinatra died, I remember where I was.  I was in a convertible with my friend, going over the Skyway Bridge and sobbing.  In fact, the people in the next car must have thought something was wrong with me.  


 


   JoAnn, it was like a time period had ended!   Yet, it really isn't, in that their spirit lives on in the body of their work, and perhaps even beyond that!   Enjoy the rest of the week, and talk to you again soon!   Shelby

  Hi JoAnn,


 




   Thank you for
starting this Topic about Paul Newman.  Which were your
favorite PAUL NEWMAN Movies?  With me it would be hard to
pick. 



 




     I loved
him as Butch Cassidy, in BUTCH CASSIDY & THE SUNDANCE
KID, co-starring ROBERT REDFORD.  I also thought he was
especially good when playing opposite ELIZABETH TAYLOR in CAT ON A
HOT TIN ROOF, and along side his wife JOANNE WOODWARD in THE LONG
HOT SUMMER.  He also was great in  COOL
HAND LUKE and THE HUSTLER



 




    Actually he
deserved an Academy Award, long before he ever received it. 
It's that he made acting look so easy, because he was that good an
actor that it was like, he became the character who he
portraid.  Shelby
