Remembering Paul Newman

LONG BEACH— Paul Newman died at age 83. I awoke to this news today. This isn’t a way to wake up.

I really enjoyed Mr. Newman’s work. One of the first movies I remember watching with my father was Cool Hand Luke. I had only recently watched Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.

His career spanned a wonderful catalogue of movies. I’ve enjoyed every film I’ve seen of his. Though I admit I haven’t seen them all. There was just something about his style and the way he went about his work that just worked. I think my favorite film of his was aside from Cool Hand Luke, was Absence of Malice. I haven’t seen this film in a long time. I think I will watch it again this weekend.

What are your favorite Paul Newman flicks? I’m interested to know.
