Paul Newman: career in pictures

Paul Newman would have celebrated his birthday on January 26th.  This is in tribute to the great actor featuring images of his films – from the classic era.

“Every time I get a script it’s a matter of trying to know what I could do with it. I see colors, imagery. It has to have a smell. It’s like falling in love. You can’t give a reason why.”

    I just LOVE these! And I LOVE how they’re set up! What a great gallery of a great man that had an amazing career. This is wonderful. I was fortunate enough to meet Paul Newman twice. Both times as he participated in auto racing. Once here in Wisconsin at Road America, and the other time at Michigan International Speedway and I can tell you he was the kindest guy there. Seriously, except for maybe Walter Payton, lol, who shared his brownie. This was years and years ago, but I’ll never forget what a quiet, but sweet man Mr. Newman was. I fell in love immediately!

  2. Wonderful set of images! Paul Newman is certainly easy on the eyes, so he’s very well-fitted to a pictorial tribute, haha. :) Nice work, Aurora!

  3. Great collection of photos! What a remarkably long career he had. Can’t believe I’d actually forgotten about some of the films you’ve included here!

  4. Wonderful collection of pictures – such a great actor. Thanks for posting this!

  5. Lord, I think I drooled all the way through this post. Great collection of photos!
    I have to admit, I couldn’t make it through “The Silver Chalice.” I watched it for Natalie Wood’s scenes and the rest just was pretty bad for me.
    I do really like his movie “The Rack.” Interesting look at what POWs face and would commit treason for and gives a different look to war after all the glory of World War 2.
