I am in mourning...


for Paul Newman, one of the most beloved actors ever. I loved his "crinkley" blue eyes. I loved listening to his raspy voice. When I was young I daydreamed what it would be like to kiss his full, lush lips. Did I mention, I had a big huge crush on him.

I loved the movies, "Cool Hand Luke, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and The Sting." I try to use the phrase "What we have here is a failure to communicate" from "Cool Hand Luke," as much as I can in regular conversation. When I found out that he and Joanne Woodward were married in real life "The Long Hot Summer" became another one of my favorites, how cool!. I always bought, Newman's Own.

It's a shame that he got cancer. I mourn the loss of one of my beloved "movie stars." I am praying for his wife and family and all of you who loved him too.

He was a classic handsome man, charming and rugged. Not a lot of men can pull it off. I'm sorry to hear of his passing too.

I agree with you. He was one of my favorite actors too. I also feel the same way about Richard Geer. I can't wait to see his new movie coming out this next week.

Debbie, I could have written your comments, they so closely reflect my 'relationship' with Paul Newman. Cool hand Luke, Butch Cassidy, and The Sting are my favorite movies of his - I was so in love with him back then. And his eyes!!! My DH has the same bright blue eyes. Paul Newman was a great man - Joanne and his family will miss him terribly.
