Paul Newman

Early in his acting career, he was often mistaken for Marlon Brando. He even claims to have signed around 500 autographs: "Best wishes, Marlon Brando." Those "Brando" autographs must be worth a fortune

Paul Newman was voted the greatest film actor of all times, according to a survey of film experts. The man with the most famous blue eyes in Hollywood topped the list based on such criteria as box-office success, Oscar nominations and acting range. The top 10: Paul Newman  Tom Hanks  James Stewart  Harrison Ford  Marlon Brando  Cary Grant Robert Redford Sean Connery Tom Cruise Gary Cooper

Paul Newman Autograph
Paul Newman steel blue eyes were legendary
 that fans wanted to photograph.
 The bother was too much
 so he took to wearing sunglasses whenever in public

Paul Newman and Robert Redford


Paul Newman Star of David - Famous Jewish ActorBorn Paul Leonard Newman in Shaker Heights, Ohio, on 26 January 1925. He attributed his good looks to his mixed heritage of being half Jewish (father side) and half Christian (on his mother’s side)

Newman was so disgusted with his debut performance in "The Silver Chalice" (1954) that he took out press adverts, garlanded with a funeral wreath, to persuade people to avoid it. It had an adverse effect when crowds flocked to the cinema much to Newman’s dismay. Oscar-nominated for Cat on a Hot Tin Roof 1958 The Hustler 1961 Hud 1963 Cool Hand Luke 1967 Absence of Malice 1981 and The Verdict 1982 before finally winning in 1986 for The Color of Money. Newman unfazed stored his only Oscar in a cupboard.

He served in the US Navy during the Second World War, but his hopes of becoming a pilot were dashed when a medical revealed that those dazzling blue eyes, for which he would later become famed, were colour-blind. That was just the beginning of the troubles those eyes have caused. All his life, Newman complained, he was plagued by fans demanding to see them. Paul once said, "to accomplish what I have accomplished, and than have some yo-yo come up to you and bark... "Take off those dark glasses and let’s have a look at those blue eyes’… it’s really discouraging."

He married actress Jacqueline Witte 1949 and had three children. They moved to New York where Jacqueline modelled and Newman studied at Lee Strasberg’s Actors’ Studio. His classmates were Marlon Brando, James Dean and Rod Steiger who perfected the art of cool... 

Father to three children, Scott, (who committed suicide) Susan and Stephanie, with first wife  and three daughters, Nell, Lissy and Clea, with Joanne Woodward who he married in Vegas 1958. Since the drug overdose death of his son, Newman has donated the proceeds from his own recipe salad dressings and foods to the Scott Newman Foundation. He also represented the USA at the 1978 UN Conference on Nuclear Disarmament.

The press describes him as,  "A cool sexuality that is unique in American cinema with a quality se of sex and danger…."  Newman retorts with, "My spaghetti sauce out-grosses my films" Famous Jewish Actors
Newman died at home in Connecticut
