Cool Hand Luke

I forgot to mention that I read over the weekend that Paul Newman died. He seemed like such a great man, and obviously, an amazing actor and philanthropist. And apparently, a romantic! He was married to his wife, Joanne Woodward, for 50 years and when people would ask him about how his marriage survived in Hollywood, he would say, "Why would I go out for hamburger when I have steak at home?" Even a vegetarian can appreciate that statement! :-)

I've never seen Cool Hand Luke, so I think Joe and I are going to rent it this week. And maybe The Hustler. Paul Newman truly lived his life to the end, and I respect and admire that.
