Paul Newman (1925-2008)
he was quite simply the greatest film actor of his generation.
yes. James Dean was more explosive in his screen beginning. the incandescence of his career is unquestionable. but there was no middle or end to that career.
James Dean & Paul Newman Screen Test
& some believe that Marlon Brando borderd on genius. I've long felt his reputation is as bloatd as his latter day physique. he squanderd both talent & beauty.
Newman was a beautiful man & good actor who remaind a beautiful man & became an even better actor. in his late career he didn't require Brando's gimmicks. his acting came from the soul. he sd more with a look than with a page of dialog.
