Indeed,one of the few good actors to come out of the Hollywood of the fifties.

Coincidentally just watched Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid again the other night.

How time flies - it doesn't seem five minutes since I went to the pictures to see the film (and The Sting) when they first came out!

Life's too short.

"What's the matter with you?"
"I can't swim."
"Are you crazy? The fall will probably kill you."

RIP Mr. Newman. Thanks for all the smiles. :sad:

Pity a few more privileged & gifted actors/actresses do not follow his example!

He certainly did something with his life for the common good!

One of the greats, and one of the last true movie stars of a golden era.

Far more than just a pretty face.

A real time Hollywood love story, PN and Joey W, 50 years married together - pretty good for Tinsel Town!
