NYT | Paul Newman Dies at 83

"Paul Newman achieved what most of his peers could not: remaining a major star into charismatic old age," wrote the New York Times today, after the death of Paul Newman. "If Marlon Brando and James Dean defined the defiant American male as a sullen rebel, Paul Newman recreated him as a likable renegade, a strikingly handsome figure of animal high spirits and blue-eyed candor whose magnetism was almost impossible to resist, whether the character was Hud, Cool Hand Luke or Butch Cassidy."
