Mmmm ... Paul Newman

I have to be honest, I haven't seen very many Paul Newman movies. As I look through his filmography on it's mostly the not-so-famous ones I've seen: What a Way to Go! (during my Shirley Maclaine phase, a mediocre film), The Towering Inferno (a fairly famous one I suppose, but also kind of lame), and The Hudsucker Proxy (a newer one, but good).

Clearly, I have some Paul Newman movie watching to do. I fully intend to show The Sting at Old Movie Night sometime soon. And some friends of mine watched Butch Cassidy last summer and loved it, so I guess I need to check that out. Any other suggestions?

Meanwhile, even though I can't really recommend any Paul Newman movies, I can tell you this: His figs are exceptional. I'm not kidding. Go to the grocery store of your choice and pick up some Fig Newmans. I'm eating some right now. They blow Fig Newtons out of the water, I'm telling you. Plus they're organic and have a clever name.

hey, check out Cool Hand Luke. It's probably his best movie, and one of the best movies I've ever seen.

"Cat On a Hot Tin Roof." "Hud," and "The Hustler." All dynamite movies, too.
