Here are two famous songs (performed by Julie London and Nancy Sinatra) chosen to illustrate the class and beauty of the legendary Paul Newman, one of the greatest Hollywood icons.
Is it necessary to introduce Paul Newman? Paul Newman was a screen legend and had the most famous blue eyes in movie history. Paul Leonard Newman was born in 1925 near Cleveland, Ohio, to a Jewish father (the son of immigrants from Poland and Hungary) and a Slovak mother. He acted in high school and spent a year at the Yale Drama School after being in the navy. He then moved to New York and attended the famed New York Actors Studio. His first broadway appearance was in "Picnic" which lead to a film contract with Warner Brothers. He made his first film, "The Silver Chalice", in 1954, picked for his Adonis looks to play a Greek slave. Later, he called it the worst motion picture of the 1950s. But more than 60 great movies would follow over the next 50 years. "Cat On A Hot Tin Roof", "The Hustler", "Hud", "Cool Hand Luke", "Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid", "The Sting", "Slap Shot", "Road To Perdition" - a seemingly endless list of some of the classics of 20th Century cinema. He produced and directed many quality films and was nominated 9 times for an Academy Award as Best Actor. He finally won this award for "The Color of Money". He lived in Connecticut with his second wife, actress Joanne Woodward. He was also a serious race driver and had founded a successful line of food products with all profits donated to charity.
