Question of the day: which Newman movie are you going to watch?

Posted at 10:55 AM on September 30, 2008 by Euan Kerr (5 Comments)

Film folk die all the time, but it's only the death of Paul Newman which has had me thinking about going back to explore his filmography. The question is, with so many movies to his credit, which to chose? Lists are easy to find, but what do you think?

"Sometimes a Great Notion" is on my list, as is "Hud." I recently re-watched "Cool Hand Luke" which was a real treat. "Butch Cassidy" I have seen many times and also "The Sting," but what about the others?

"Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" clearly, "Slapshot?" A double bill with "The Hustler" and "The Color of Money?" There are so many choices and so little time.

Any and all suggestions are welcome. Also if you haven't already heard NPR's Bob Mondello paying tribute to Newman, it's a fine way to spend 8 minutes.
