Very sad.  We've lost another giant of the film world.  He sure left us some damn fine films to enjoy.  Rest in peace.

I can't remember ever having seen a movie where he didnt put on anything less than a sterling performance.

He'll be missed.

I realized that he had been here just a few minutes before.
I was lying where the water had run down his body . . . and I found that intensely erotic.
Almost everything about Robert Kincaid . . . had begun to seem erotic to me.

Another one the the greats has passed, but the legend will live on forever on screen in so many fine performances.

R.I.P, Mr. Newman.

Great pics everyone.

There's a nice article in the "Dining Out, Dining In" section of today's New York Times on how Newman, through his organic snack food line, helped change America's snacking habits, as regards organic products, anyway.

http://www.nytimes.com/2008/10/01/dining/01paul.html

Quote
If Mr. Newman hadn’t let his daughter Nell create an organic spin-off of his Newman’s Own line in 1993, the nation might still be choking down leaden organic cookies and rock-hard pretzels.

Using white flour, sugar and other ingredients familiar to the American palate, Newman’s Own built a bridge that helped organic foods move from the health food store to the supermarket.

“His visibility put a quality imprimatur on organic products,” said Caren Wilcox, who recently stepped down as director of the Organic Trade Association.
