just watched the color of money... ironically the night before he passed... and it is one of the best PN movies i've ever seen -- gives cool hand luke a run for its "money"

we've lost a real talent in entertainment...

Your headline reminded me that Diana Vreeland used to have a column where she offered ideas and suggestions that began with "Why don't you ..."

The movie is great idea! It will be "Paris Blues" for me since it stars Joann, too, and is sexy and bittersweet (if I am recalling it correctly).

You might enjoy the picture of Newman and Woodward that I posted last night on my blog:

Was there ever a more beautiful guy to appear in movies?

The Glamourai - Cool Hand Luke has always been a favorite but I think I might have to rent Cat on a Hot Tim Roof and The Long Hot Summer this week! Such a loss!

Ms. Wis - That's who I took the heading from! I LOVE her! Have you read the books about her life? Fascinating! I don't know anything about Paris Blues so I may have to rent that too! Thanks for the suggestion!

An Aesthete's Lament - I always loved Steve McQueen more but Paul Newman seemed like a very upstanding gentleman and we all know Steve was a bit of a bad boy and we all know they are trouble!

I had a bag of microwave popcorn in his honor.

He was so incredibly good looking when he was younger -and he managed to keep those good looks with grace and bring a lot of good about through his celebrity. He will be missed -but we'll always have his movies. He was such a talented actor, not just a pretty face! Those piercing eyes......

probably the only geriatric that i would consider having sex with. is that weird?

the average life of a star these days is 7 years. This man was a star for 7 decades. Never again will there be someone of this magnitude. He not only was beautiful but was truly a thespian who cared about the future of theater.

I used to follow Eddie's flea market column in House Beautiful and fantasize about him joining me and my group of friends on a Sunday. Lucky you!

Here are some suggestions for books to learn about tableware. The Cooper Hewitt had an exhibition in the recent past examining the history of dining and the accoutrements of the table. The catalog for the show is called: Feeding Desire: Design and The Tools of the Table (1500 - 2005). Another book - by Peri Wolfman and Charles Gold (remember Wolfman, Gold and Good Company?) is called Forks, Knives & Spoons. No home should be without Cheryl Mendelson's Home Comforts (The Art & Science of Keeping House). It is really a one volume encyclopedia. I also look forward to Patrick Dunne's articles (usually in Southern Accents) to continue my education in the art of the table. Enjoy!

Even better, why not make a donation to the charity of your choice in his honour? He was a fine actor, but his work as a philanthropist was what made him a great human.
