Paul Newman 1925-2008

One of a kind, he will be remembered:

I remember when I was a kid, my friends mom had a poster of him with his shirt off over her washing machine. I asked her who he was and why he was above her washer/dryer. She just smiled at my innocence.

I will always remember him as the smiling, joking chain-gang prisoner Cool Hand Luke that would never give up and in the process gave hope to his fellow prisoners. It was good to see him use his good looks and celebrity for good causes in his later years.

Green Cine has an archive on the tributes as they come in:
