    Don't forget about Slapshot. A true classic.

    I had no idea he flew in Avengers during WWII.

    He was always Butch Cassidy in my mind.

    Damn and RIP. :(

    Expected. but sad nonetheless. He left a great film legacy, as well as a great charitable legacy.

    Despite being a certified moonbat, he did some great work in his life, both for charities and in film. Despite being a moonbat, he didn't use his celebrity as a platform for politics, but as a platform for charity.

    RIP Paul, you will be missed.

    Dennis Miller had a great line about Newman and his social activism. Couldn't find it on the google. Something about how he kept it quiet and did it the right way.
    One of the rare liberals from Hollyweird who didn't shoot his mouth off and piss off half his viewers. RIP Mr Newman.:(

    Didn't he donate all the money he made on his food lines to charity? I didn't like his politics but he must have been one of the most generous in Hollywood. That man made some really fine movies and will be missed. :(

    Newman's Own has grown into a powerful and lasting expression of Paul Newman's generosity. The Company has generated over $250 million in proceeds that have been donated by Paul Newman and the Newman's Own Foundation to thousands of charities worldwide. Particularly close to his heart were the Hole in the Wall Camps, now the leading global family of camps for children with life-threatening illnesses, which Paul started over 20 years ago.
    What a tight-wad!:D

    I loved Slapshot and Butch Cassidy. My parents took me (and my siblings) to see Butch Cassidy at the drive-in when I was about 7.

    I always liked that he and Joanne Woodward had a Hollywood romance that lasted.
