Lung cancer. He was a chain smoker all of his life and yet I never saw a picture of him with a cigarette in his hand except on film. Sort of like Jackie Kennedy. Smoked all her life but only one picture I can recall seeing her with a cig in her hand. He was a great actor but like all actors intensely aware of the image he projected.


I wonder what his first wife thought of him? He dumped her for Joanne Woodward. But it seems the marriage was a success and we all make mistakes in relationships.

Paul Newman was not only a great actor, but an unusual human being. I was sad to hear of his death and will miss him. He was one of my favorite people. Besides, will there ever be another person who has blue eyes as nice and piercing as his?


The following is a slide show on the life of Paul Newman. There are some interesting things about his life that some members may not know. Most people know that he gave all the proceeds from his food products to charity. The total amount was at least $250 million. He also started a summer camp for children with cancer. He lost his only son to drugs.

Newman was incredibly impressive on the screen, but he was even more so in person. I'm sure hundreds of thousands of people have their own personal Paul Newman story, and here's mine.


In the 1968 Presidential campaign, Newman was an indefatigable campaigner for Gene McCarthy. He traveled to hundreds of college campuses to rev-up student support for Gene. I had the pleasure of introducing him to an overflow crowd at a Midwestern College Campus that year. Before we went on stage, he whispered to me and asked if he could borrow my watch (seems his watch had stopped and he wanted to make sure he didn't go over his allotted time). After he was done speaking he had to rush off to another campus about 75 miles away, but while he was speaking, his driver for that day became ill. Newman asked me if I would drive him to the next event, and I readily agreed.


Digression: It was well known in those days that Newman had a serious affinity for Budweiser beer. Early on our way to his next speaking engagement, he leaned forward in the car (he was in the back seat) and asked me if I would stop and buy him a six pack.


During the 75 mile trip, he guzzled the Bud and got funnier with each can, keeping us (there were three of us plus Newman) in absolute stitches. There was zero hint of pretense or ego, just a very common demeanor.of a very uncommon man.


He was one of a kind. May he rest in peace.


P.S. I still have the watch. }(


P.P.S. For those of you who like to cook, try to find a cookbook he co-wrote with his long time friend and neighbor, A.E. Hotchner, and his (Newman's) daughter, Nell. The recipes are complemented by anecdotes only Newman could tell. :p
