Newman’s Own

A non-proofed review copy of Paul Newman: A Life, written by Shawn Levy, arrived today. I’ve been hearing about this sucker for a long time, and how some really good material about Newman’s early days has been dug up. I’m two pages …no, three pages in and so far it’s a very clean, smooth and easy read. It’ll be buyable in early May.

Newman never sat down with Levy, but he didn’t tell friends and colleagues not to cooperate either. It’s obviously a good time for an in-depth review of the life of Henry Gondorf, Ben Quick, Eddie Felson and Butch Cassidy. I presume everyone heard that applause during the Oscar telecast death tribute? Check out this high-school photo…amazing.

    I didn’t watch th Oscars (waste of time) but I’m sure it was loud and prolonged. Newman was THE last movie star (there’s the better title). Looking foward to this. I don’r read celebity books but I’m impressed by this guy having worked on it for so long. let us know if it it’s good past the first couple pages. Please.

    Newman looked a bit like Shia LaBeouf in his high school days.

    Still not sure why Faulkner changed the name of to Quick. Maybe because the character had redeeming qualities unlike in the book.

    He was a great, compassionate (and handsome) man… I can’t imagine how much pain his widowed man must be going through.

    The In Memoriam segment of the Oscars is the one thing that is impossible to screw up. And they screwed it up with the multiple screen shit. I have a regular size TV, I couldn’t make out half the names of the dead people. Really sucked.

    “I can’t imagine how much pain his widowed man must be going through.”

    Not as much as the pain your parents went through raising you.

    Widowed man?

    First off it is a widower, not a widow man. Second, Newman was married to a woman and fellow actress for years.

    Oh, brother!

  • bfm

    They say some women are “beautiful inside and out”, but that was Newman to me.

    Jesus, bfm…

    Is it just me, or did you just kinda come onto Newman’s corpse?
