Paul Newman passed away yesterday at 83 due to cancer.

Dude was an onscreen legend, a humanitarian, and a great person. He will be sorely missed.

One of my favorite films of all time is Cool Hand Luke. His persona was perfect for that role. He even lent dignity and style to the voice in Cars. A true Hollywood icon, but refreshingly humble and graceful, and his charities will be his tribute, too.

"What, we have here, is..." :cry:

Yes, I read the news today, and for once I will actually miss someone from the film industry.

One of the well respected icons and truly great legends of Hollywood. A true family man, humanitarian, activist, philanthropist, and all around great guy.

He will be missed.

Goodbye Reggie Dunlop.
May your #7 be hoisted to the rafters.

I remember his racing team back when he had started doing it.

He had chosen the little humble Datsun 510, and was kicking everybody's *sses, who drove BWW 2002's and Alfa Romeos and other cars of that class.

That's how I learned about this car and went out and bought a used one. It was one of the first cars I ever owned. I never had so much fun in my life! Best handling car I ever had.

Thanks Paul

I just read the news - and was shocked...that he was 83.

BTW - his best movie ever was Slap Shot.

A great actor who spanned generations. May he R.I.P.

Being Canadian I feel almost ashamed that my favorite Newman flick is "The Color of Money". He leaves a great legacy.

"What, we have here, is..." :cry:

a failure to replace a legend with an actor of equal class, acting chops, humanitarian service, charm, and salad dressing recipes!

Loved the Sting and Sundance Kid!
