Paul What-a-man!

So Paul Newman has passed-on at the marvellous age of 83.

Isn’t it nice to hear about a star, who did not think of himself as one, who did not ‘do the rounds’ of all the red-carpet venues, who was married for over forty years to the love of his life, and who thought of film-making as a job, not an opportunity to become famous.

He spent the last number of years developing a food brand bearing his name, but whose intention was to raise money for charity! I never bought any of the products but will now! I remember seeing him in ‘Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid’ where he portrayed someone who seemed to enjoy his situation in life, and that maybe was a simile for his actual life.

May he rest in peace.

  1. he had class…

    as for his food company…i’m a die-hard fan of his ‘lemon aided-iced tea’–i blogged about it once–and if they pull his brand from the shelves (as some business people are hinting), i don’t know what i’ll do.

  2. CWG….thanks for the tip about the iced tea, must see if we can get some when shopping next. i think it would be a mistake for them to withdraw the lines….if anything the sales would probably increase.

    Flighty….I’m not a great film buff, But Butch Cassidy was one I always remembered. We might get a run of them now!
