You Know, That "Ol Luke Smile"

A guy can't help but watch Paul Newman and wish that he was one tenth as cool as Paul was in "Cool Hand Luke". In the top 5 movies (films) of all time, "Cool Hand Luke" with Paul's smile, his never give up attitude and realness about him, draws you in to a character that was just made up for a movie, but touches anyone watching it down deep in their soul. The supporting cast, character actors you've seen in so many other movies and shows on T.V., provide Paul with just the right energy to pull off one of the great movie performances of all time.

I will miss Paul Newman, 1925 - 2008, one of the greatest men in Hollywood, a real man that had that mystic charm that made you want to be like him. I won't go on about any of his later politics in this post, sometimes you just keep that picture in your head of the person you want to remember, and I'll always remember Paul Newman.....and that 'ol Luke smile.....
