The passing of Paul Newman

Paul Newman died Friday at his home near Westport, Conn., after a lengthy battle with cancer, he was 83. Newman also was an actor, philanthropist, talented director of theatrical and television movies including The Silver Chalice (1954), The Hustler (1962), Cool Hand Luke (1967), Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969), The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds (1972), The Verdict (1982), The Color of Money (1987), The Glass Menagerie (1987), The Road to Perdition (2002), Empire Falls (2005) and Cars (2006).

I enjoyed watching his acting skills - especially in Cool Hand Luke. I think he was a top notch actor and a credit to his profession.
