Vale Paul Newman 1925-2008

Paul Newman has died from cancer. A comprehensively decent man whose acting performances have entertained me for as long as I have been watching movies. This interview with him was made in 2007
I most remember him best from The Sting, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and a compelling, very different sort of performance, in The Verdict.   He made movies for 50 years.  I also enjoyed the early versions of his 'industrial strength spaghetti sauce' which he released in the US on my first visit there about 30 years ago. He made a fortune with his food products and gave the lot to charity.
