For nearly half of the 20th century and into the 21st, the name Paul Newman — along with his steely blue eyes — was nearly synonymous with old-Hollywood cool.
From his starring turn as Rocky Graziano in “Somebody Up There Likes Me” to the rebellious anti-hero (long before Taylor Swift made the term an anthem) in “Cool Hand Luke” and other classics like “The Sting” and “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,” Newman’s staying power lasted decades. In the 80s he revived his "Fast” Eddie Felson character from “The Hustler” for “The Color of Money” with Tom Cruise and left his impression on a new generation when he voiced the character of Doc Hudson in the Disney animated film “Cars.”
