Paul Newman, R.I.P.

This was the only clip I could find of my favorite Paul Newman movie, "The Long Hot Summer." The chemistry with Joanne Woodward was incredible.

My blogger friend Marc Cooper features his own tribute with more clips and links, and emphasizes--as I should have above--Newman's progressive politics.

Around my house, Paul Newman was an absolute fixture, so I saw a lot of his movies. His passing leaves me in a state of shock.

it's hard not to admire Paul Newman for putting his money to work in such productive ways, such as his Newman's Own line--high quality stuff and the proceeds go to good causes... very smart.

Thanks, movie fan, and agreed: His is the only salad dressing I ever buy.
