    RIP.

    What is your favorite Paul Newman movie?

    I'm torn between "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" and "The Sting"

    There are so many to choose from.

    Well Newman is one of those rare individuals whose judgment and talent provided that what ever he was in, was great...

    Cool Hand Luke is probably my favorite old Newman flick, but I LOVE "Nobody's Fool;" it's just a great flick...

    After that it would be Butch Cassidy... The Sting, The Hustler and The Long Hot Summer...

    and SB reminded me of HUD... God I haven't seen that one in YEARS... Great movie...

    I'd go with Cool Hand Luke.

    He's just as good an actor in Hud or Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, but I think I just liked Cool Hand Luke more.

    The man made so many great movies choosing which was his best is damned hard, isn't it?

    No, I don't think that fair.

    There's tremendously talented young actors working today, too.

    Every generation will spawn great thespian talent.
