Paul Newman autograph

Paul Leonard Newman (born 1925) is an American actor and film director. He has won numerous awards including Academy Awards, Golden Globe Awards, Screen Actors Guild Awards, a Cannes Film Festival Award, and an Emmy award.

Newman was one of the few actors who successfully made the transition from 1950s cinema to that of the 1960s and 1970s. His rebellious persona translated well to a subsequent generation. Newman starred in Exodus (1960), The Hustler (1961), Hud (1963), Harper (1966), Cool Hand Luke (1967), The Towering Inferno (1974), Slap Shot (1977) and The Verdict (1982). He teamed with fellow actor Robert Redford and director George Roy Hill for Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969) and The Sting (1973), or with his wife, Joanne Woodward, in the feature films The Long, Hot Summer (1958), ….. Harry & Son (1984) and Mr. and Mrs. Bridge (1990).

In addition to starring in and directing Harry & Son, Newman also directed four feature films.

25 years after The Hustler, Newman reprised his role of Fast Eddie Felson in the Martin Scorsese directed The Color of Money for which he won the Academy Award for Best Actor. He passed away Sept. 26th 2008.
