Another Legend Gone

Legendary actor Paul Newman dies at age 83

Another true Hollywood actor gone. I'm not too sure what the first Paul Newman movie I had watched was, but it was in black & white. He portrayed a POW on trial for war crimes, I think. I was very young & it was over my head, but I was watching it with my dad.

Next, I watched Cat On a Tin Roof, again another movie that I didn't quite understand, but this movie was in color & I was hooked on those blue eyes!

Then, I watched Cool Hand Luke, which is probably one of my favorite Newman movies.

[Luke won a game of poker on a bluff]
Dragline: Nothin'. A handful of nothin'. You stupid mullet head. He beat you with nothin'. Just like today when he kept comin' back at me - with nothin'.
Luke: Yeah, well, sometimes nothin' can be a real cool hand.

Sometimes, I think I was born in the wrong era.
