    Paul Newman, age 83, has died from cancer. The world has lost a great actor, driver and humanitarian.

    Thanks for the memories PLN.

    Gee, two posts and nobody has trashed him for being a liberal.

    He was a HANDSOME guy when he was younger. Wow! Cancer is one of the worst ways to go.

    "I can eat 50 eggs!" What a great movie and what a great actior. Even if he had liberal politics, he had conservative values. Charity, monogamy, humility, and courage. Lots of courage. RIP.

    sarge, exactly how was Newman a leech on society by pretending to be something he was not and getting a cut of the gate? If you mean his acting career, you would have to consider John Wayne and Charlton Heston leeches on society too.


    His company Newmans Own has donated all after tax profits to charities, total to date is around 250 million dollars.

    I never knew what his politics were. When I would see him on talk shows he was either promoting a movie or talking about racing. He didn't launch into some liberal diatribe, like most of these jackasses do.

    To me he was a pretty good actor. I thought "Hud" was one of his best.

    When did he die? Damn I watched "Slap Shot" last night. Had no idea. What we have here is a failure to communicate.

    I loved Paul Neuman as an actor. There were few better. But I disrespected him as a hypocrite who made millions firing a gun on film while donating who-knows-how-much to the anti-gun crowd. Could they be the "charities" to which he donated 250 million dollars?

    I'm sorry to hear this. I thought he was invincible. Not only a great actor but a generous philanthropist.

    I once had the privilege of sharing a race track with him at Watkin's Glen and in spite of being 20 years older he kicked my butt and we were driving comparable cars.

    His movies were classics.

    When Sundance said that he couldn't swim Butch said "Hell the fall will probably kill ya." Great movie.

    Paul started racing after learning to drive a race car for the film "The Racers". He went on to win national championships in SCCA (Sports Car Club of America) competition at an age when most of his fellow drivers were the age of his children. He was also co-owner of Newman-Haus Racing.
