Just over a year after his death, I came across this photo of Paul Newman today and it reminded me of when I was a teenager. I had a huge poster of his face on the inside of my wardrobe door and, even though he was older than my dad, I thought he was gorgeous. With those twinkling blue eyes he looked as charming as he is reputed to have been.
I loved him in ‘Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid’ and the last scene of the film, which is a freeze frame in sepia tones, where he and Robert Redford emerge with all guns blazing only to be met by volleys of gunfire, still makes me cry.
Just thought I’d share that!
