Hi everyone,
As am I am sure all of you know by now film legend Paul Newman passed away earlier this week. He was one of my favorite actors, from back when films were BIG. My favorite film was Cool Hand Luke. What was yours?

What a great topic...and so hard to answer. Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and Cool Hand Luke a tie! My gosh my dearly departed paternal grandmother LOVED him and Frank Sinatra! I think it was their eyes to be honest!

Cool Hand Luke. "What we have here is failure to communicate". Strother Martin was great too. There were a lot of great performances in that film and George Kennedy won an Oscar, as I recall. I've probably watched it ten times over the years. He was also great in The Hustler, but that goes way back. I loved all his films, he was one of my all time favorites.

Aww man I forgot about Slap Shot. I got to meet one of the Hanson Brothers at a Hockey game here one time. Him and Barry Melrose.

Hands down, Cool Hand Luke. To this day I will only eat a hard boiled egg as egg salad.

Wow, you have some serious issues with "turtle people" talking about other things in life! ;) Nothing personal, but if you do not like the contents of this site, why don't you stop coming here?

Or, you could leave comments that are relevant to the post. Now, come on! I'm sure you've got a Paul Newman Film in mind that you're just dying to tell us about.

Look, this section of the site is for "Movies, Music and Books". This is for the discussion of "Movies, Music and Books". Read the description next to the forum. If you want to discuss Turtles, there are other areas in which you can discuss turtles in. Please stop trolling in this topic or it would get a good topic locked and deleted. Thanks! :)
