"Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" (1958) is one of the best titles on a book/play/movie ever. I wish I could come up with stuff like that. It sounds equally good on Swedish: "Katt på hett plåttak".

Charles Martineau

Slap Shot was my favorite movie from Newman!

Eduardo Berrios

Siempre leo su blog, porque las presentaciones son un tema importante en mi desarrollo profesional, sin embargo y motivado por su articulo de hoy, le quería comentar que desde Chile, las películas de Paul Newman siempre han sido seguidas. Quizás, en lo personal, me toca más por el recuerdo que me genera de mi padre.

Gracias por la información y felicitaciones por su blog.

Desde Chile, Eduardo Berríos.


It's a great loss indeed.

The summation-scene is incredible. The other one is fun. You found a good balance for a blog-tribute.

P.S.: Next time you meet Robert Redford say hello to him from me, too, ok?

I love The Verdict and glad to see it referenced here. It was one of Newman's greatest roles, but underappreciated.

loan reference

yes..Paul Newman, one of the greatest American actors of all time.

I can't wait to see if/how/when this technology rolls out to the public
