Morning Man Classic: Paul Newman!


Paul Newman was, quite simply, one of the best looking men to have ever walked the Earth. Born in 1925, he would have been 96 today.

In addition to his Oscar-winning role in The Color of Money, his other classic films included Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, The Hustler, The Sting, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Sweet Bird of Youth and Cool Hand Luke among many others.

Newman’s last movie appearance was as a conflicted mob boss in the 2002 film Road to Perdition opposite Tom Hanks, for which he was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor.

His last appearance overall was in 2005 in the HBO mini-series Empire Falls for which he won a Golden Globe and a Primetime Emmy.

At the time of his death in 2008, he had been married to Joanne Woodward for 50 years.

4 Remarks

  1. Paul was THE MAN back in his day!
    Here’s my take on Newman’s own at 40 as “Harper”:

  2. Paul Newman like Paul Walker… Beauty on two legs. Paul Walker reminded me of Paul Newman, the blue of their eyes, OMG. Mr. Newman’s products “Newman’s Own” are awesome. The sauces are so good. Paul Newman, sir, you are missed.

    WOW..THE LAST PICTURE LOOKS SOOO LIKE PERRY COMO!!

  4. Oh, Mr Newman has always been the be-all, end-all for me on every front. A stunningly great actor, a humanitarian and civil rights activist, a devoted family man and beautiful inside and out. He gifted us with so many stellar screen performances but Absence of Malice, Hud (he should’ve been awarded an Oscar!) and The Verdict stand out for me. And for sheer belly laughs, A New Kind of Love with Joanne Woodward. I return to these films again and again when I need a Paul Newman fix. He is so missed.
