He was one of the great movie stars of them all.
Newman was a guy that both men and women loved. I loved him because he was a pretty boy star and a serious actor. He did all of those big, splashy star vehicles and then stretched himself in smaller, character-driven movies. He wasn’t always great, wasn’t always right for a part, but he made the effort, he put himself out there. "Cool Hand Luke," "The Verdict," "Slapshot," "The Color of Money" are just a few of my favorite Newman movies.
He lived a long, good life. Did a lot of wonderful things with his name.
He will be missed. He should be celebrated.
