So long Paul Newman

—–Lots of links at the Anchoress… Paul was 83 and that is exactly my life expectancy as I am 70 [which is entirely beside the point]

—-R.I.P to a great actor and a helluva man…

My fav… The scene in Cool Hand Luke where they feed him all the hard boiled eggs… After he chokes the last one down… Everyone just walks away leaving him about gagging on his own stomach… 🙂



  1. RIP Paul.

    One of the last real movie stars. I loved many of his movies but I will always remember him as a race driver. I saw him in a 6 hour race at the old Riverside Road course when I was a kid racing a Porsche 911. Now sadly both the course and a great driver is gone. Many don’t know this, but Paul drove in the 24 hours of Daytona endurance race the last time when he was 80 years old. He did much for the sport I love and he will be sorely missed.

  2. What a great man.

    Never sought the limelight and was married to the same woman for 50[?] years.

    Did great work for others too.

    A lesson to us all.
