Paul Leonard Newman (January 26, 1925 – September 26, 2008) [ [ "Film Star Paul Newman dead at 83."] September 27, 2008.] [ [ "Legendary Actor Paul Newman Dies at Age 83."] "ABC News".

He won numerous awards, including an Academy Award for his performance in the 1986 Martin Scorsese film "The Color of Money", three Golden Globe Awards, a BAFTA Award, a Screen Actors Guild Award, a Cannes Film Festival Award, an Emmy award, and many honorary awards. He also won several national championships as a driver in Sports Car Club of America road racing, and his race teams won several championships in open wheel IndyCar racing.

Newman was a co-founder of Newman's Own, a food company from which Newman donated all post-tax profits and royalties to charity. [ "FAQs"] Newman's] As of May 2007, these donations had exceeded US$220 million.

On September 26, 2008, Newman died at his longtime home in Westport, Connecticut, of complications arising from lung cancer.

Early life

Newman was born in Shaker Heights, Ohio (a suburb of Cleveland), the son of Theresa (née Fetzer or Fetsko; Slovak: Terézia Fecková)Lax, Eric, (1996). - "Paul Newman: A Biography". - Atlanta, Georgia: Turner Publishing. - ISBN 1570362866.] Morella, Joe and Edward Z. Epstein, (1988). - "Paul and Joanne: A Biography of Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward". - Delacorte Press. - ISBN 0440500044.] and Arthur Samuel Newman, who ran a profitable sporting goods store. [ [ "Paul Newman Biography (1925-)"] . -] [ [ "Ancestry of Paul Newman"] . -] His father was Jewish and his mother, who practiced Christian Science, was born to a Slovak Catholic family at Ptičie (formerly Peticse) in the former Austria–Hungary (now in Slovakia).Hamill, Denis. - "Paul Newman, A Big Gun at 73". - "Buffalo News". - March 7, 1998. - Retrieved: 2008-03-08] [ [ Ptičie Resumé] . - Obecný úrad Ptičie] Newman had described himself as Jewish, stating that, "it's more of a challenge".Skow, John. - [,9171,923114-5,00.html "Verdict on a Superstar"] . - "TIME". - December 6, 1982.] Newman's mother worked in his father's store, while raising Paul and his brother Arthur (who later became a producer and production manager). [ "Paul Newman biography"] . -]

Newman showed an early interest in the theater, which his mother encouraged. At the age of seven, he made his acting debut, playing the court jester in a school production of "Robin Hood". Graduating from Shaker Heights High School in 1943, he briefly attended Ohio University in Athens, Ohio, where he was initiated into the Phi Kappa Tau fraternity.

Military service

Newman served in the Navy in World War II in the Pacific theater. Newman was sent to the Navy V-12 program at Ohio University, hoping to be accepted for pilot training, but this failed when it was discovered he was color blind. [ "Paul Newman"] . - Biographies in Naval History. -] He was sent instead to boot camp and then on to further training as a radioman and gunner. Qualifying as a rear-seat radioman and gunner in torpedo bombers, in 1944 Aviation Radioman Third Class Newman was sent to Barber's Point, Hawaii, and was subsequently assigned to Pacific-based replacement torpedo squadrons (VT-98, VT-99, and VT-100). These torpedo squadrons were responsible primarily for training replacement pilots and combat air crewmen, placing particular importance on carrier landings. He later flew from aircraft carriers as a tail gunner in the Avenger torpedo bomber. As a radioman/gunner, he served aboard the "USS Bunker Hill" during the battle for Okinawa in the spring of 1945. He was ordered to the ship with a draft of replacements shortly before the attack but, by a fluke of war, was held back because his pilot had an ear infection. The rest of his detail died. [Hastings, Max, (2008). - [ "Retribution: The Battle for Japan, 1944-45"] . - Random House. - ISBN 0307263517.]

After the war, he completed his degree at Kenyon College, graduating in 1949. Newman later studied Drama at Yale University, graduating in 1954, and under Lee Strasberg at the Actors' Studio in New York City.

Oscar Levant wrote that Newman was initially hesitant to leave New York for Hollywood: "Too close to the cake," he reported him saying, "Also, no place to study." [Levant, Oscar, (1969). - "The Unimportance of Being Oscar". - Pocket Books. - p.56. ISBN 0671771043.]

Film career

Newman made his Broadway theater debut in the original production of William Inge's "Picnic" with Kim Stanley. He later appeared in the original Broadway productions of "The Desperate Hours" and "Sweet Bird of Youth" with Geraldine Page. He would later star in the film version of "Sweet Bird of Youth", which also starred Page.

His first movie was "The Silver Chalice" (1954), followed by acclaimed roles in "Somebody Up There Likes Me" (1956), as boxer Rocky Graziano; "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" (1958), opposite Elizabeth Taylor; and "The Young Philadelphians" (1959), with Barbara Rush and Robert Vaughn.

Newman appeared in a screen test with James Dean for "East of Eden" (1955). Newman was testing for the role of Aron Trask; Dean was testing for the role of Aron's fraternal twin brother, Cal Trask. Dean won the part of Cal, while the role Newman was up for went to Richard Davalos. The same year Newman would co-star with Eva Marie Saint and Frank Sinatra in a live —and color —television broadcast of the Thornton Wilder stage play "Our Town". In 2003 Newman would act in a remake of "Our Town", taking on Sinatra's role as the stage manager.

Major films

Newman was one of the few actors who successfully made the transition from 1950s cinema to that of the 1960s and 1970s. His rebellious persona translated well to a subsequent generation. Newman starred in "Exodus" (1960), "The Hustler" (1961), "Hud" (1963), "Harper" (1966), "Hombre" (1967), "Cool Hand Luke" (1967), "The Towering Inferno" (1974), "Slap Shot" (1977) and "The Verdict" (1982). He teamed with fellow actor Robert Redford and director George Roy Hill for "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" (1969) and "The Sting" (1973).

He appeared with his wife, Joanne Woodward, in the feature films "The Long, Hot Summer" (1958), "Rally 'Round the Flag, Boys!", (1958), "From the Terrace" (1960), "Paris Blues" (1961), "A New Kind of Love" (1963), "Winning" (1969), "WUSA" (1970), "The Drowning Pool" (1975), "Harry & Son" (1984) and "Mr. and Mrs. Bridge" (1990). They also both starred in the HBO miniseries "Empire Falls", but did not have any scenes together.

In addition to starring in and directing "Harry & Son", Newman also directed four feature films (in which he did not act) starring Woodward. They were "Rachel, Rachel" (1968), based on Margaret Laurence's "A Jest of God", the screen version of the Pulitzer Prize-winning play "The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds" (1972), the television screen version of the Pulitzer Prize-winning play "The Shadow Box" (1980) and a screen version of Tennessee Williams' "The Glass Menagerie" (1987).

Twenty-five years after "The Hustler", Newman reprised his role of "Fast" Eddie Felson in the Martin Scorsese-directed "The Color of Money" (1986), for which he won the Academy Award for Best Actor.

Last works

In 2003, he appeared in a Broadway theatre revival of Thornton Wilder's "Our Town", receiving his first Tony Award nomination for his performance. PBS and the cable network Showtime aired a taping of the production, and Newman was nominated for an Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Miniseries or TV Movie.

His last screen appearance was as a conflicted mob boss in the 2002 film "Road to Perdition" opposite Tom Hanks, although he continued to provide voice work for films. In keeping with his strong interest in car racing, he provided the voice of Doc Hudson, a retired race car in Disney/Pixar's "Cars". Similarly, he served as narrator for the 2007 film "Dale", about the life of the legendary NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt, which turned out to be Newman's final film performance in any form.

Retirement from acting

Newman announced that he would entirely retire from acting on May 25, 2007. He told US broadcaster ABC that he did not feel he could continue acting on the level that he would want to. "You start to lose your memory, you start to lose your confidence, you start to lose your invention. So I think that's pretty much a closed book for me." [ [,23599,21797406-2,00.html "Paul Newman quits films after stellar career"] . May 27, 2007.] [ [ "Hollywood star Newman to retire"] . BBC News. May 27, 2007.]


With writer A.E. Hotchner, Newman founded Newman's Own, a line of food products, in 1982. The brand started with salad dressing, and has expanded to include pasta sauce, lemonade, popcorn, salsa, and wine, among other things. Newman established a policy that all proceeds from the sale of Newman's Own products, after taxes, would be donated to charity. As of early 2006, the franchise has resulted in excess of $200 million in donations. He co-wrote a memoir about the subject with Hotchner, "Shameless Exploitation in Pursuit of the Common Good". Among other awards, Newman's Own co-sponsors the PEN/Newman's Own First Amendment Award, a $25,000 reward designed to recognize those who protect the First Amendment as it applies to the written word. His daughter, Nell Newman, took the helm of the company with his death. [ [,21985,24149703-663,00.html "Paul Newman says he will die at home."] "Herald Sun". August 9, 2008.]

One beneficiary of his philanthropy is the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, a residential summer camp for seriously ill children, which is located in Ashford, Connecticut. Newman cofounded the camp in 1988; it was named after the gang in his film "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" (1969). Newman's college fraternity, Phi Kappa Tau, adopted "Hole in the Wall" as their "national philanthropy" in 1995. One camp has expanded to become several Hole in the Wall Camps in the U.S., Ireland, France and Israel. The camp serves 13,000 children every year, free of charge.

In June 1999 Newman donated $250,000 to Catholic Relief Services in aid refugees in Kosovo. [ [ CNN - Incoming Kosovo refugees, outgoing U.S. donations - April 7, 1999 ] ]

On June 1, 2007, Kenyon College announced that Newman had donated $10 million to the school to establish a scholarship fund as part of the college's current $230 million fund-raising campaign. Newman and Woodward were honorary co-chairs of a previous campaign.cite news |title=Paul Newman donates $10 mln to Kenyon College |publisher=Reuters |url= |date=2007-06-02|accessdate=2007-06-04]

Paul Newman was one of the founders of the Committee Encouraging Corporate Philanthropy (CECP), a membership organization of CEOs and corporate chairpersons committed to raising the level and quality of global corporate philanthropy. Founded in 1999 by Newman and a few leading CEOs, CECP has grown to include more than 175 members and, through annual executive convenings, extensive benchmarking research, and best practice publications, leads the business community in developing sustainable and strategic community partnerships through philanthropy. [ [ CECP - Committee Encouraging Corporate Philanthropy ] ]

Marriages and family

Newman was married twice. His first marriage to Jackie Witte lasted from 1949 to 1958. Together they had a son, Scott (1950), and two daughters, Susan Kendall (1953) and Stephanie. Scott Newman, who died in November 1978 from an accidental drug overdose, [Clark, Hunter S. [,9171,960672,00.html?promoid=googlep "People"] . Time magazine. February 17, 1986.] appeared in the films "Breakheart Pass", "The Towering Inferno" and the 1977 film "Fraternity Row". Paul Newman started the Scott Newman Center for drug abuse prevention in memory of his son. [ [ "Welcome"] . Scott Newman] Susan is a documentary filmmaker and philanthropist and has Broadway and screen credits, including a starring role as one of four Beatles fans in 1978's "I Wanna Hold Your Hand". She also received an Emmy nomination as co-producer of his telefilm, "The Shadow Box". Newman had two grandsons.

Newman married actress Joanne Woodward on February 2, 1958. [ [,,20229386_20219605_3,00.html "Remembering Paul Newman."] "People". September 27, 2008.] They had three daughters: Elinor "Nell" Teresa (1959), Melissa "Lissy" Stewart (1961), and Claire "Clea" Olivia (1965). Newman directed Elinor (stage name Nell Potts) in the central role alongside her mother in the film "The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds".

Newman lived away from the Hollywood environment. He made his home quietly in Westport, Connecticut, and was devoted to his wife and family. When asked about infidelity, he quipped, "Why go out for hamburger when you have steak at home?" [cite web|url= | title=I Thee Wed... | |accessdate=2008-07-23] [cite news|url= |title=Concern about Paul Newman's health |publisher=New York Daily News |date=2008-03-12 |accessdate=2008-07-23] [cite news|url= |title=It's an age-old quandary — why do men, like dogs, stray? |publisher=The Guardian |date=2006-10-08 |accessdate=2008-07-23]

Political activism

For his strong support of Eugene McCarthy in 1968 (and effective use of television commercials in California), Newman was 19th on Richard Nixon's enemies list. []

Consistent with his work for liberal causes, Newman publicly supported Ned Lamont's candidacy in the 2006 Connecticut Democratic Primary against Senator Joe Lieberman, and was even rumored as a candidate himself until Lamont emerged as a credible alternative. He had donated to Chris Dodd's presidential campaign. [ [ "Dodd Gets Financial Boost From Celebs"] . 17 Apr 2007.]

Newman was also a vocal supporter of gay rights and, in particular, same-sex marriage. [ [ Paul Newman an icon of cool masculinity ] ]

Newman was an avid auto racing enthusiast, and first became interested in motorsports ("the first thing that I ever found I had any grace in") while training for and filming "Winning", a 1969 film. Newman's first professional event was in 1972, in Thompson, Connecticut, and he was a common competitor in Sports Car Club of America events for the rest of the decade, eventually winning several championships. He later drove in the 1979 24 Hours of Le Mans in Dick Barbour's Porsche 935 and finished the race in second place.citeweb | url = | title = XLVII Grand Prix d'Endurance les 24 Heures du Mans 1979 | publisher = Le Mans & F2 Register | date = 2008-05-02 | accessdate = 2008-09-27] Newman rejoined Dick Barbour in 2000 to compete in the Petit Le Mans.citeweb | url = | title = American Le Mans Series 2000 | publisher = World Sports Racing Prototypes | date = 2005-10-02 | accessdate = 2008-09-27]

From the mid-'70s to the early '90s, he drove for the Bob Sharp Racing team, racing mainly Datsuns (later rebranded as Nissans) in the Trans-Am Series. He became heavily associated with the brand during the '80s, even appearing in commercials for them. At the age of 70 he became the oldest driver to be part of a winning team in a major sanctioned race,Fact|date=September 2008 winning in his class at the 1995 24 Hours of Daytona.citeweb | url = | title = International Motor Sports Association 1995 | publisher = World Sports Racing Prototypes | date = 2007-02-14 | accessdate = 2008-09-27] Among his final experiences in racing was competing in the Baja 1000 in 2004 and the 24 Hours of Daytona once again in 2005.citeweb | url = | title = Grand-American Road Racing Championship 2005 | publisher = World Sports Racing Prototypes | date = 2005-12-17 | accessdate = 2008-09-27]

Newman initially owned his own racing team, which competed in the Can-Am series, but later co-founded Newman/Haas Racing with Carl Haas, a Champ Car team, in 1983. The 1996 racing season was chronicled in the IMAX film "Super Speedway", which Newman narrated. He was also a partner in the Atlantic Championship team Newman Wachs Racing. Newman also owned a car NASCAR Winston Cup before selling it to Penske Racing, where it now serves as the #12 car.

Illness and death

Newman was scheduled to make his professional stage directing debut with the Westport Country Playhouse's 2008 production of John Steinbeck's "Of Mice and Men", but he stepped down on May 23, 2008, citing health issues. [cite news |url= |title=Citing Health, Newman Steps Down as Director of Westport's "Of Mice and Men" |date=2008-05-23 |accessdate=2008-06-15 |publisher=Playbill]

In June 2008 it was widely reported that Newman, a former chain smoker, had been diagnosed with lung cancer and was receiving treatment at Sloan-Kettering hospital in New York City. [ [,22049,23833842-5001026,00.html?from=public_rss "Paul Newman has cancer"] . - "The Daily Telegraph". - June 9, 2008.] Photographs taken of Newman in May and June showed him looking gaunt. [ [ "Gaunt Paul Newman has 'form of cancer,' business partner says"] . - "Sun Journal". - June 12, 2008.] Writer A.E. Hotchner, who partnered with Newman to start Newman's Own salad dressing company in the 1980s, told the Associated Press that Newman told him about the disease about 18 months ago. [Christoffersen, John. [ "Longtime friend: Paul Newman has cancer"] . "Associated Press". June 11, 2008.] Newman's spokesman told the press that the star is "doing nicely," but neither confirmed nor denied that he had cancer. [ [ "Newman says he is 'doing nicely'"] . - BBC - - June 11, 2008.] In August, Newman reportedly had finished chemotherapy and told his family he wished to die at home. He did so on September 26, 2008, aged 83, surrounded by his family and close friends.cite web |url=|title=Acting legend Paul Newman dies at 83 |last=AP |publisher=msnbc |accessdate=2008-09-27] His remains were subsequently cremated after a private funeral service near his home in Westport.
