Paul Newman 1925-2008
My first Paul Newman movie, is still one of my favorites of all time: What a Way To Go, a little dark romantic comedy, starring Shirley Maclaine as a woman who marries a string of poor men, only to have them all get rich and die in freak accidents. Paul Newman played a painter who dies at the hands of his robotic painting machine invention, which has made him rich. Definitely worth renting if you haven’t already seen it.
