By way of tribute, I'm going to rewatch some Newman essentials (there are so many) over the next few days. Cool Hand Luke makes my Top-Ten-Best-Films-of-Ever list. Newman is at the top of his game in his unforgettable portrayal of Luke Jackson. "What we have here is a failure to communicate." Oh, man. It's such a great movie.

Cool Hand Luke

A handful of other favorites:

Nobody's Fool
Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid

The Sting

He was one of my real heroes. I'm so sad for his death and so joyful for his life.
