Paul Newman Passed away on Friday, September 26th, 2008 at his home in Connecticut.
Paul Newman was not only a great actor and icon but a legend. This man was a symbol of class and integrity. Paul Newman was not only famous for his 10 Oscar nominations but for his marriage to Jo Ann Woodward, as well as his charitable contributions. In the 25 years that he owned Newman’s Salad Dressing he contributed over $200 million dollars to those less fortunate.
Newman attained stardom in the 1950s and never lost the movie-star aura, appearing in such classic films as “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof,” “Exodus,” “The Hustler,” “Cool Hand Luke,” “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,” “The Sting” and “The Verdict.”
He finally won an Oscar in 1986 — on his eighth try — for “The Color of Money,” a sequel to “The Hustler.”
Paul Newman will be missed by all. Our condolences go out to his friends and family at this very difficult time.
