"Yes, his eyes were that blue and beautiful. ...His legacy as a humanitarian for children around the world is unmatchable. My heartfelt sympathy goes out to Joanne and the family."
~Eva Marie Saint

Paul Newman died today. He was one of the last surviving actors that I consider truly great. His piercing blue eyes and loveable cocky attitude endeared him to generations. Portraying characters such as Ari Ben Canaan, Ben Quick, Rocky, or Billy the Kid, he made each one come alive with his brilliant acting.
We will never be able to forget him. He will be greatly missed.
