Paul Newman, 1925-2008

One of the most intelligent Hollywood actors (and directors) ever, Paul Newman, died last Friday at the age of 83. Newman studied acting at Yale University and, under Lee Strasberg, at the Actors' Studio in New York City. His first film acting role was in The Silver Chalice (1954), and his career in the movies went on to span six decades.

There's a report and a good obituary on the BBC website (links HERE and HERE). And below you can find the three sections of a good video overview of Newman's career, together with that of his partner, Joanne Woodward, who survives him.
