    A fine man, a fine husband a fine actor.

    sic transit gloria

  2. "Why go out for hamburger when you can have steak at home."
    Paul Newman, on being faithfull.( to Joanne Woodward)
    RIP Paul.

  3. If I shaved....put the shavings on blue contacts...

    A pity. The "retirement" from acting put the writing on the wall. Still recall the opening scenes of The Verdict. Story goes that Redford wouldn't play the part of Frank Galvin because a vomiting and alcoholic failed lawyer wasn't "him".

  4. Almost separated at birth Father ... it did occur to me.

  5. Wonder if he drank black beer? Possibly as the Irish gangster patriarch eh?

  6. I think he'd have been a man you could have shared a beer of any color Father ... ah, if only ... now what a story that would have been to tell.

    Raise a glass or two in remembrance. They don't make 'em like that anymore, and we are all the poorer for it.

    (Redford was never a patch on Newman; always a tad too precious about himself.)

  7. "a tad too precious about himself."
