More on Paul Newman

My Five Favorite Paul Newman Performances

1. Cool Hand Luke
One of the greatest movies of all time, anchored by Newman's powerhouse tragicomic role as Luke, the hardcase with nothing to lose. But, as we all learned, sometimes nothing can be a real cool hand.

2. Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
The film that made Newman and Redford such an iconic duo, it's hard to believe they only ever made one other movie together.

3. Nobody's Fool
Cynical and romantic, bitter and sweet, funny and wise, this is Newman's last great film.

4. The Life and Times of Judge Roy Bean
John Milius wrote and John Huston directed this often overlooked masterpiece, a savagely satirical take on frontier justice.

5. Harper
Newman gets hipped up as a cool cat P.I. investigating a very California mystery.
