list making with paul newman

I really adored Paul Newman. He was not only a great actor, but a truly giving man. Most times when an celebrity dies, I feel bad and move on. But there was something about Newman that made him more than just an actor or a celebrity. There was a humanity to him that you don’t often see in stars.

My 9 favorite Newman flicks:

For Apache The Bronx
The Towering Inferno
Absence of Malice
The Sting
The Hustler
Fat Man and Little Boy
Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
Cool Hand Luke
Slap Shot
