Paul Newman (1925- 2008)

We all knew it was coming... but now it's actually happened. Movie legend Paul Newman had died aged 83. I'm hardly the one you'd come to for a eulogy, so I'll keep it brief. I almost feel as if I'd only just started getting to know Mr Newman... I only saw his classics Hud and The Hustler a few months ago, and I have still to catch up on Cool Hand Luke... I feel as if I'm only just coming to terms with how superb he really was, and now he's gone. Condolences to his family and everyone who was close to him: he will, truly, be missed.
