Paul Newman-A Great Loss

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Despite how busy the last week has been, it would be a major faux pas not to acknowledge the passing last week of Paul Newman. He was simply the quintessential movie star. A handsome guy with penetrating blue eyes, who graced the screen with his style, humor and great talent. After can you begin to pick the best Paul Newman movie? Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid of course. And what a classic The Sting was. Hud, The Long Hot Summer, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, I saw them all. Remember The Drowning Pool? It was filmed in Franklin, Louisiana; in the same house were former Gov. Mike Foster lives today. He was my favorite actor, who gave away over $200 million to charity. Check out the film tribute below.
