Happy Birthday Paul!

Today (January 26) Paul Newman turns 81. He is a very notable contributor to film as both an actor and director and a personal favorite of mine. Here are some of my favorites:

The Sting (1973), Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969), Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (1958), The Color of Money (1986), and The Hudsucker Proxy (1994). He also directed Rachel, Rachel (1968), The Glass Menagerie (1987), and more.

Did I miss any??


Newman is a fine actor (Cool Hand Luke is a favorite of mine), but he's an even better chef! Love that salad dressing!

Hud and The Hustler are my favorites. He was also great in The Verdict and just won a Golden Globe for his performance in Empire Falls.
