The death of Paul Newman has opened up a big box of Newman memories. Here are some highlights.
=> The LA Times has marvelous photos of Newman and his wife Joanne Woodward as a young couple.
=> A Westport, Connecticut obituary, with the focus on his local life.
=> ESPN has the dope on his racing career.
=> A 2004 Times of London interview, with Newman as feisty as ever. (Asked for his own epitaph: “I used to think it would be ‘Here lies Paul Newman, whose career ended when his eyes turned brown.'”)
=> On video: An early screen test with James Dean…
…and Newman’s famous jury summation from another of his great performances, in The Verdict, as beaten-down attorney Frank Galvin:
Thanks for everything, Mr. Newman.
