Paul Newman – Born January 26, 1925

I am digging further back in our pop-culture consciousness for today’s entry. Paul Newman is timeless and if you are not familiar then you need to do yourself a favor. Go find some of his flicks online and start streaming. Here are some (some, not all) of my favorites.

Noteworthy

  • Cool Hand Luke – It is a toss up between Cool Hand Luke and Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid as to which is my favorite. Cool Hand Luke chronicles Newman behind bars, trying to escape, trying to make it in the big house, while plagued by the worst warden in cinema history. The warden is trying to break him and Newman keeps coming back. Amazing movie an utterable quotable

“what we have here, is failure to communicate.”

  • Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid – He and Redford are perfect in this film. Add to two of the best actors in the world at the time, a great soundtrack and score and a tremendous script and the whole movie, especially the end is captivating.
  • Blaze – Newman plays the corrupt Earl Long in Louisianna. He is dating a stripper named Blaze. Hilarity, heartbreak, and some solid acting ensue.
  • Cars – Paul Newman – former race car drive and motorsport enthusiast and icon voicing a former Race Car. Perfect casting and a perfect voice acting job by one of the greats.

If you’re playing a poker game and you look around the table and and can’t tell who the sucker is, it’s you.
