Thanks for the memories, Paul

I was sorry to hear Paul Newman died. What a sweetheart of a guy he seemed to be. A great actor, a devoted husband (bonus points for staying married to the same woman for 50 years!) and father, an extremely generous philanthropist (millions of dollars donated to the "Hole in the Wall Gang" charity by way of sales of Newman's Own food products).
My 3 favourite movies of his are "Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid", "The Sting" and "Message in a Bottle" (where he proved that even septegenarian curmudgeons can be sexy!). He will be greatly missed by all of those who loved and admired him. I am grateful his legendary films will be available for us to watch for years to come.
