Death of a great actor: Paul Newman

Actually, “great actor” doesn’t seem quite adequate to describe Paul Newman. A Titan of Hollywood, writes the New York Times. What a career!

The last time I saw Paul Newman in a film was in The Road to Perdition. He was then in his late 70s, and more handsome, more charismatic than ever. Remember that scene in the crypt of the church, where he told Tom Hanks that neither of them was going to Heaven? One of the great moments in the history of cinema.

So thank you, Mr. Newman.
